Around 160 years ago, the small town of Chappell Hill was founded by Mary Hargrove Haller, who named it after Robert Wooding Chappell, her grandfather. Soon after its establishment, Chappell Hill and its fertile lands attracted scions of prominent southern families. This new wave of settlers further established the town’s identity as an agricultural community with cotton as its main crop.
