Inscription. Deeded to the Presbyterian Church in 1850 by the Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company, this is the last resting-place for many of Panther Valley’s earliest settlers. Originally lined with individual tombstones, graves were enclosed with iron fences and a stone wall which remains intact. Community members rallied for the site’s improvement and rededicated it in 1974 as the “Summit Hill Community Memorial Park.”
