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.
