Summit, MS.

Although I am not certain  of the date this little cemetery was
established, it can be estimated around the 1850's when Summit
received it's charter and the Jewish settlers first arrived in the area
along with the railroad.

At one time Summit had
two Jewish Synagogues.  
Ahava Shalom, which
was started in 1877 and
lasted until 1910. The
other congregation was
formed around 1906 but
did not last long.
The temple was destroyed sometime in the 1924 by a tornado which devastated the town.
