Settled in 1847, the community soon had two institutions of higher learning. The small schools thrived for a while but faded in 1867 when the community was almost wiped out by a yellow fever epidemic. The rural community still reflects the quiet pace of bygone times. The town has more than 25 Recorded Texas Historic Landmarks and 10 sites in the National Register of Historic Places, including the Main Street Historic District.
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 building has now been reconstructed and serves as the Chappell Hill Visitor Reception Center.
Historic downtown district tours are available through a local historical group. 979/836-6033.
Festivals include the Bluebonnet Festival of Texas in the spring and the Scarecrow Festival in the fall.
