Summit Hill is a borough in Carbon County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 2,974 at the 2000 census. The hamlet has a storied history as the western terminus of the USA's second operational railway, the Mauch Chunk & Summit Hill Railway and some of the earliest coal mine developed in North America, where the Lehigh Coal Mining Company began mining in 1792, establishing the town as little more than a mining camp with stables and paddocks.
