Shelvey Summit
Fox Township


by Sherry Jesberger

SHELVEY SUMMIT is located on Route 948 about three miles outside of Kersey going toward Ridgeway. It was named for an Irish immigrant named Shelvey who had a farm in the area. My great grandmother, Bessie (Moyer) Copella used to talk of teaching school in Shelvey Summit. There is a ski run somewhere in the area, and Mervyn Kemmerer has a large farm here. There are no stores, but plenty of dwellings today.
