SNOW HILL, TX (UPSHUR COUNTY)
SNOW HILL, TEXAS (Upshur County). Snow Hill, a farming community off Farm Road 1649 twelve miles northeast of Gilmer in eastern Upshur County, was settled sometime before 1900, when a school was in operation there. By 1906 the school had an enrollment of sixty-eight black students. In the mid-1930s Snow Hill consisted of the school, a church, and a number of houses. The school was closed after World War II, and by the mid-1960s only the church and a few widely scattered houses remained. In 1990 Snow Hill was a dispersed rural community. By 2000 the population reached seventy-five.
