SUMMIT, NJ - The daughter of the original owner of The Grand Summit Hotel, Robert Hatt, is turning 100 years old.
One of wishes was to visit the hotel to once again see the place she grew up living in as a child. The result was a wonderful visit from her and her two children who spent the night, toured the property, enjoyed a nice dinner with birthday cake and champagne, as she regaled those in attendance with stories of her childhood.
She detailed how the current Summit Board Room used to be her parent’s bedroom, and told stories of how she and her sisters would eat pies in the kitchen.
