Snow Hill Institute, located 100 miles southwest of Montgomery, Alabama, was founded in 1894 by William J. Edwards, a graduate of the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute. It began in a one room log building with one teacher and three pupils. The purpose of the school, as outlined in this course catalogue was, “to prepare young men and women to go into communities where they mean to work, and by precepts and examples encourage the people to build better school houses…to beautify and dignify their homes and bring about the needed reform that is so essential to economic and upright living." The Academic Department at the school was divided into elementary, secondary, and normal classes, and evening classes were offered, as well.
