Chappell Hill, Texas

Settled in 1847, Chappell Hill soon thereafter had two institutions of higher learning. The small schools thrived a while, but faded in 1867 when the community was almost wiped out by a yellow fever epidemic. The rural community still reflects a quiet pace of bygone times.

Chappell Hill has more than 25 Texas Historical Markers and 10 sites listed on the National Register, including the Main Street Historic District. The historic downtown district tours are available through the local historic group.

Annual festivals include the "Bluebonnet Festival of Texas" in the spring and the "Scarecrow Festival" in the fall.
