Today on DelmarvaLife –
Today’s DelmarvaLife Small Town Series takes us to the Worcester County town of Snow Hill. Founded in 1686 by English Settlers, Snow Hill became a Royal port of entry in 1694. The Pocomoke River fostered commerce and farming flourished in the surrounding area.
At the heart of Snow Hill is the Pocomoke River. The Pocomoke River Canoe Company and Pocomoke River Cruises offer an unsurpassed way to experience one of Delmarva’s natural wonders. 102.5, WBOC’s Corey Phoebus set sail to see for himself.
Snow Hill is home to several artists. One of them is a woman who does it all. She draws, does water color, and acrylic paintings, and runs her own working art studio. WBOC. We get to know Artist Nancy Ellen Thompson.
A common theme in Snow Hill, is artists helping to foster new artists. The Regal Beast on Washington Street is a cooperative art studio that, not only provides a place to learn art, but to showcase it too.
Bishop’s Stock Fine Art, Craft & Wine in Snow Hill is another gallery that represents over 30 established and emerging artists from Maryland, Delaware and Virginia. WBOC’s Heidi Werosta visits the gallery and gives us a tour.
There’s plenty of shopping to be done in Snow Hill. One of the shops has been around since 2003. Lisa visits Sassy Girl Boutique to see the unique gifts, decor, and fashion you’ll find there.
