Signatures of bank officers W. Bratten, cashier, and John L. SNOW HILL MARYLAND is the county seat of Worcester County on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, with a population of roughly 2,200. Snow Hill was established as the county seat of government. In 1793 the town was platted into some 1000 lots. It was involved in the American Revolutionary War and in June of 1775, it adopted resolutions to aid and support the colonists in Massachusetts. Local records were hidden during the War of 1812. Both Northern and Southern sympathies were evident during the War Between the States. As steamboats replaced schooners, Snow Hill continued as an active port, carrying passengers and goods to the Western Shore. Trade was the engine that drove the economy in the town. Churches, schools, hotels and boarding houses sprang up, along with lumber companies that dominated the waterfront. Stores for general merchandise, liveries, coopers, smiths and wagon makers all took their living from the traffic on the river. Snow Hill became an attractive place for craftsmen who prospered from their local trade as well as from their proximity to the river. Their ability to import and export goods and materials on the river allowed them to build remarkable dwellings. Snow Hill was known as a town of gracious living where merchants, bankers, farmers and sea captains could show off their wealth and fine homes. 1893 marked a disastrous fire that destroyed Snow Hills original downtown area and the early records of the town and county that were housed in the Courthouse. While the downtown business district was destroyed by the fire, many historic homes and public buildings remained, including some pre-Revolutionary War structures which are carefully preserved by Snow Hill residents today.
