On this day, in 1894, the New England region of the country suffered from a historical snowstorm. A low pressure system moving northeast offshore formed the snowstorm off the New Jersey coast, bringing about substantial amounts of rain, show, and high winds. Of this, two people and several horses were lost.
Any weather event that takes place this early in time is hard to find information on. However, I found this event to be particularly unique because of the surface map of the event shown below.
