Historic District

  In May 2005, after much work by the History Committee and others in the community, the US Department of the Interior, National Park Service approved the Town’s request for the establishment of the Summerfield National Historic District by listing the district on the National Register of Historic Places. When the district was established, it included 24 properties generally clustered around the intersection of Old Summerfield Road and Oak Ridge Road (NC-150). The official map of the district showed 33 contributing buildings and 17 non-contributing buildings. Most of the non-contributing structures were small outbuildings. 
In 2020, the town installed four new signs that define the historic district boundaries.
