Snow Hill is on the high land between Pilot and Indian creeks near State Highway 78 ten miles northeast of McKinney in northeast Collin County. It supposedly was named by a group of surveyors who stood on the ridge when it was covered by a fresh layer of snow. Throughout its history the community has served as a church and school community for area farmers. The population of Snow Hill from 1940 through 2000 was estimated at twenty.
