This historic community, located in the heart of Texas, offers an ideal setting for homes, ranches and businesses with beautiful scenery, rolling green hills, tranquil lakes, historic Texas landmarks and country charm, yet the "big city" is less than an hour away. Chappell Hill is situated in the southeast portion of Washington County, which lies halfway between Houston and Austin on US Hwy. 290.
It's the perfect time of year to visit Chappell Hill and the surrounding towns.
