In its 230 year history, this ridge top estate has been associated with significant events in such diverse fields as pioneer settlement, Civil War history, experimental agronomy, astronomy and Gaithersburg's social and physical development. The area known as Summit Hall Farm Park goes back to Gaithersburg's earliest history and the people associated with Summit Hall helped shape the city we know today. The original house, shown on the left in 1887, was remodeled in the late 1930's. This is the house we see today.
