Schnapstown, or Schnaps Town, is a name derived from Schnaps Tavern, which is said to have catered to a German clientele. It also was called Snaptown and Snopstown. Snaptown also is believed to have been a corruption of Snopstown, named for a distillery and the Butler Tavern located there. The community was at the present Fairfield intersection of Winton Road and Dixie Highway (Ohio 4). A Furmandale post office operated there from Dec. 12, 1857, until Oct. 11, 1858. It was called Furmandale because Nathaniel Furman bought the Butler Tavern and converted it to a girls boarding school.
