Founded in 1847 by Mary Hargrove Haller, Chappell Hill offers a history rich in culture, higher education, sandbars and stern-wheelers, cotton, the War-Between-the-States, and Polish immigration.
The Chappell Hill Historical Society's mission is:
The CHHS Board will meet Wednesday, June 12 at 4:30 p.m. at the Rock Store.
The CHHS exhibit gallery will offer the major exhibit "The Life and Legend of V.T. 'Cowboy' Williams." New this year is the Travis and Linda Cook Collection of cowboy bronze art. The exhibit will be on display June 9 through July 29.
The Summer Cowboy Roundup is June 22-28 at the Museum. Fun for all ages includes using a branding iron, tying knots, tossing cow chips, designing boots, roping a steer and pitching horseshoes.
After the July 4th Parade (organized and presented by the Chappell Hill Chamber of Commerce), the Museum will host special events until 1:30 p.m. The schedule of events will include the Buckaroo Band, Robert Duke (aka Cowboy Bob the Fun Roper), EMC Farms with pony rides, petting zoo, Roy Rogers movies and the Rocking T Chuck Wagon demonstating cowboy cooking.
