Snow Hill, Indiana in Randolph County Named For A Large Adena Mound

The line of trees marks where the now abandoned railroad and Adena Mound was located. Two other large mounds are still visible several miles from this location.


There is a large, whitish, mound-like hill or knoll, round and smooth, with neither trees nor grass, not far from Snow Hill station, north of Lynn, on the Grand Rapids Railroad, each of the railroad and west of the pike. This knoll, covered in the winter with snow, is thought to have given the name of the old town, or hamlet, of Snow Hill.
