The Summerville Light is believed to be the ghost of a woman who lived here over 100 years ago. Legend has it that she met her husband at the train after work every night, with a lantern to guide them home. He was killed in a logging accident nearby, and apparently, these many years later, the woman’s ghost still makes the trek. The light is a green glow, some say basketball sized, that hovers over the road. It may start out small and far away.
