The river continued to be a major influence on the economy of Snow Hill for many years.
After the conclusion of the Civil War, the railroad came into the eastern shore. As the railroad grew, river travel decreased. Much of the business which provided Snow Hill's economic base closed up. Alternate industries started to spring up in agriculture providing a new thriving economy.
