Our History

In 1854, the townsite of Summersville was created. The town later became known as Carter’s and in 1899 West Side Lumber and Flume Company established its own post office. The name was given to the new post office Tuolumne (pronounced too-WAH-la-me). Tuolumne’s name translates to “cluster of stone huts” relating to Mi-Wuk Indian dwellings. The name Summerville comes from the first of three names given to Tuolumne. Upon the naming of the school in 1911, the second ’s’ was lost and the name has remained Summerville.
