The county seat of Worcester County claims its roots along the banks of the Pocomoke River, growing into a farming and business community. Rebuilt after a devastating fire in the 1800s, Snow Hill has managed to retain its original status as the commercial and governmental hub of a rich agricultural area. A community of pleasing contrasts, the tranquility of tree-lined streets mixes with the bustle of county business. Canoe rentals and river originate right in town, while the Shad Landing Area of the Pocomoke River State Forest and Park offers camping, boating, a pool, and marina. The riverfront also serves as a panoramic setting for concerts at the pavilion.
