The Snow Hill Society was the long-lived daughter colony of the more noted Ephrata Society of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Snow Hill was sited on the southern outskirts of the village of Quincy, Pennsylvania (north of Waynesboro) in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. It flourished from the late 18th century to the late 19th century, numbering at its height some forty celibate brothers and sisters.
