Summit’s Iconic Cornog Field House is Getting a Makeover!

The Iconic Cornog Field House located within Soldier’s Memorial Field at 5 Myrtle is under construction once again. Although it is not on the historic register, it has a timeless look and appeal to the residents of Summit. Last year, restoration work was completed on the chimney and this year’s construction will see a renovation of the roof, as well as replacement of the upper windows, soffits and gutters. The project was funded through the City’s Capital Improvement Fund in the amount of $296,000.

Dedicated on November 11, 1928, the building was named for Elwood Cornog, a beloved resident, coach and veteran, who was active in the Summit community. This location will also be the temporary home of The Department of Community Programs during the upcoming construction of the Community Center from September 2017 – September 2018.

The Memorial Field Playground will remain open during construction. This phase of the work is expected to be completed by early September. Future improvements will be made to the building following this phase and will include additional window and door replacement.
