Summit (or Summit-Argo) is a village in Cook County Illinois with a population estimated at 11,000. The village is arguably best known as the setting to Ernest Hemingway's 1927 short story "The Killers". The village is 12 miles Southwest of the Chicago Loop and sits on the gentle rise separating the Chicago River from the Des Plaines. Summit was very ethnically diverse from the start. Native-born settlers, lured by frontier opportunities, were joined by Irish canal workers by the late 1830s with the Germans following shortly after. From the 1880s to the early 1900s, the flow of immigration became a flood as Poles, Croats, Slovaks, Russians, Italians, and the Dutch all arrived. A few African American and Mexican households were present at the turn of the century, and the first Greek family arrived in 1910. Incorporated in 1890, Summit's population was 547 in 1900. It rose to 4,019 by 1920 and has since grown into the even more thriving community that it is today.
