Summersville remains the only town in America where both Larry Smith, Operations Manager of FM 99.9 The Big Dawg, and Leon Lewis, owner of Jeffries Hardware in Columbia, KY, both grew up, the only Green County Community ever to have a drive-in theater - and it's still in operation; and maybe the only Green County Community with it's own college center, at Jacob Grove Baptist Church. \
