History & History Related Items

Snowflake history:

Snowflake was named, not for the snowfall of the area, but for the two founders of the town, Erastus Snow and William Flake. Originally the name was two words, Snow Flake. It was changed to one word in 1906. It was also the first county seat of Apache County. Later, when the county boundaries were changed, the county seat was moved to St. Johns. Taylor, a small community nearby, has had many activities combined with Snowflake over the years. Many of the old homes are still in liveable condition with some listed on the national registry of Historic Places.
The founding of Snowflake: 1881
The incorporation date of Snowflake: 1948
