This small town dates back to the 1840s and was originally the James K. Polk familyÃ‚’s summer retreat. Located on the Highland Rim, itÃ‚’s a bit cooler here than in the low country, and the areaÃ‚’s popularity as a getaway provided its name. In the late 19th century, Summertown was a fashionable resort, with six hotels. Today, it has an eclectic mix of people, including an Amish settlement and a former commune.
