Living in Snow Hill, Maryland is small town living at its best. Nestled on the south banks of the Pocomoke River Snow Hill is a place where people know each other. From the people who call it home to the business owners and those in city government, we have built a community where life is gentle, fun, and prosperous. Home to a quaint downtown retail area and a broad spectrum of recreational activities, Snow Hill is the perfect place to spend a relaxing weekend or a lifetime.
Whether you are interested in researching your genealogy in the Worcester Room of the Worcester County Library, renting a kayak from the Pocomoke River Canoe Company to paddle on an undeveloped natural river, or studying the architecture of historic homes and beautiful churches while taking the Historic Walking Tour, Snow Hill has something for everyone. You will find recreational opportunities in Byrd Park and Sturgis Park, artifacts at the Julia A. Purnell Museum, and treasures in the shops and art galleries.
The beautiful rural setting boasts rich farmland that has been the mainstay of the economy of the county seat of Worcester County for centuries. The rich heritage of this area is celebrated daily at Furnace Town Living Heritage Museum and during a summer festival every August with The Blessing of the Combines.
The town of Snow Hill welcomes you as you explore our small town steeped in history and tradition but alive with charm and activities.
