Chappell Hill Historical Museum


category : Museums
Chappell Hill Historical Museum The Chappell Hill Historical Museum, a must-see for early Texas history buffs, occupies a former public school building constructed in 1927 and built on the site of the Chappell Hill Female College. Exhibits of photos, documents and artifacts give a glimpse of the town from its beginnings in 1847 to the present day. Visitors have the opportunity to learn about Soule University for men, The Chappell Hill Female College, King Cotton, the Brazos river, the Polish community, and the War-Between-the-States.

The 1855 Henry C. Brandt house was sold to the Providence Baptist Church in 1893 and served from time to time as a pastor's residence. A derelict structure by 1996 when the Historical Society acquired it, this historic building has now been reconstructed and serves as the Chappell Hill Visitor Reception Center.
