English colonists settled Summerfield during the 1700s, and initially called it Bruce’s Cross Roads, after Charles Bruce, a man who built a large plantation at the crossroads of two active stagecoach routes. Historians believe George Washington spent the night in Bruce’s home in 1791 on his return north from his “Southern Tour.”


By the 1800s, the main street of town held homes, a sawmill, feed mill, and a few other businesses. Later, tobacco farms spread throughout the community, and the town was renamed Summerfield in honor of evangelist John Summerfield, who relocated to the area.


Andrew Jackson lived in Summerfield for a year before becoming the seventh president of the United States in 1829.


In 1996, Summerfield was officially incorporated after citizens rallied to stop a commercial rock quarry from construction. Today, Summerfield’s Historical Committee works tirelessly to preserve and educate about the story of Summerfield.
