City Directories and History: “Snow Hill gets its name from William Snow, who acquired the property in 1792. The property was also called Snow’s Landing as it fronts Kingston Lake, aka Town Creek in 1735. From the mid-1800s until 1880, the Barnhill house (No. 19) was located on this site. During that year, Franklin G. and Adeline C. Burroughs had the Barnhill house moved off this site and built a larger 2-1/2 story house, featuring a double piazza. The house was destroyed by fire in the early 1920s when it was being remodeled. The four brick columns found on the grounds were being added to the house at the time. A few years later, Mr. and Mrs. Donald M. Burroughs built another house on the same site. That house was later acquired by Dr. and Mrs. H. B. Holmes, Jr. who made additions and extensive renovations to give the house its present appearance.”
