During the Revolutionary War, Summit played a pivotal role due to its higher elevation. The railroad spurred the development of a town center, complete with luxury hotels. One of these hotels, the Blackburn House, was built in 1868 on Springfield Avenue and was reconstructed in 1929 as the Summit Suburban Hotel. It was then renovated in 1986 and renamed the Grand Summit Hotel. Today, it caters to executives visiting corporations in Summit and nearby towns.
