The Nassawango Iron Furnace was started in 1829 near Snow Hill Maryland. The Village of Nassawango developed in support of the Iron Smelting business, in which cast iron was produced from the bog iron ore found in the marshes and creeks of the Pocomoke River Basin. Abandoned in 1850, the town crumbled and dissappeared until only the mighty furnace remained.
Iron Furnace, Snow Hill MD

Restoration work began in the 1960s, with the Furnace Town Foundation incorporated in 1982 to own, operate and interpret the Historic Site. Now the museum offers programs in archeology, history, nature and artisan interpretations to educate and enlighten the public; and they offer a view of the village as it was in the 1830s and '40s. The Nature Conservancy participates with the Foundation in support of the Visitor Center and operates the Paul Leifer Nature trail on the N.C. Preserve along Nassawango Creek.

The Rotary club of Snow Hill was chartered in 1941. The motto of Rotary International is «Service above Self». The principle focus of the Rotary Club of Snow Hill is Education and Health ( especially for those who lack the opportunity to fend for themselves; the poor and the young ) both locally and internationally, with specific local reading programs for elementary schoolers, toddler seats, scholarships, and international projects such as special aid to disaster areas, and drilling water wells in Africa.
