Boston Street of the Day
From the Annual Report of the Street Laying Out Department for the Year 1894:
Snow Hill Street, Boston; from Prince Street to Charter Street; from Prince Street to the end of Ferry-way by Hudson's Point, 1708; called Snow Street in 1722, 1732, 1738; from Charlestown Bridge up to the burying-ground on Copp's Hill, 1800; from Prince Street across Copp's Hill to Charter Street, 1817; laid out between Hull Street and Charter Street, April 10, 1837.
Notes: The Annual Report of the Street Laying Out Department also mentions Snow Hill, Boston; at the northern extremity of the town; later called Copp's Hill. So Snow Hill did get its name from being one of the most likely spots in Boston to be snowy. Our forebearers were very practical in that respect and future entries will look at streets which bear names related to topographical features no longer extant.
