SCHOOLS IN THE SNOW HILL AREA
The earliest school in the Snow Hill area was the Frog-Level-Trickum school. Located at what is now Greenwood Road and Island Point Road. The name is partly derived from the creek that runs through the property – Frog Level Creek. The land was donated by the Padgett family and additionally used as a church.
A one room school was located where the Cross Roads Baptist Church now stands (Ooltewah-Georgetown and Mahan Gap Road).
The James County Board of Education purchased 5 acres for a nominal price at the corner of Mahan Gap and Snow Hill Road after 1900. Cross Roads and Frog-Level-Trickum were consolidated into Snow Hill. At that time a frame school house was built. One of the first teachers was F. T. (Flauvous) Hoge. The frame building remained until a brick building was built in 1925.
