Gaithersburg in Montgomery County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The Summit Hotel
During the spring and summer months, the Summit Hotel was open to the many vacationers escaping the heat of the nation's capitol. The hotel manager, Juan Boyle, hosted many elaborate banquets, elegant balls, and open air concerts throughout the social season. Boyle's catered affairs were tastefully done and attracted many distinguished guests, including senators and other notable political figures. Although business slowed during the cold winter months, the Summit Hotel remained fully utilized. During the hotel's final winter, it served as home to the Fair View Seminary. Sadly, the Summit Hotel was destroyed by fire in 1895.
