    Chapel Hill, Missouri

    A description of Chapel Hill from 1874:

    "Chapel Hill, 26 miles s. s. w. of Lexington, and a designated station on the B. & S. W. R. R., was incorporated in September 1857."  (from Campbell's Gazetteer of Missouri, R. A. Campbell, St. Louis, 1874)

    The settlement of Chapel Hill no longer has an organized government.  Located in the the far southwest corner of Lafayette County, highway signs still mark the location of the community.  The Chapel Hill post office operated from 1850 to 1904.   The famed Chapel Hill College was located here but was burned along with most of the rest of the community in 1863 by Quantrell's men during the Civil War.  Chapel Hill was named after Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  In 1881, Chapel Hill was described as having thirteen residences, three stores, one blacksmith shop, three physicians, one church, one Masonic lodge, and a grange lodge.
