Description


A small village, rich in North Carolina history, Snow Camp has long been a crossroads and an outsider to the Old North State. Settled in 1749 by the oldest Quaker meeting still in the region, the community has been involved in the nation's history since its origin. The Regulators Movement formed over unfair taxation by the North Carolina colony and helped inspire more famous protests in Boston. Freedom's Hill Wesleyan Church arose in Snow Camp to resist the dominant pro-slavery culture of both the state and the Methodist Church in 1847. The Underground Railroad held faith in Snow Camp, having four stations in the small area alone. Join author and resident J. Timothy Allen as he chronicles Snow Camp's compelling past, present and future.
