Lanes (Lane's) Chapel is on Farm Road 2602 seven miles northwest of Valley Mills and twenty-three miles northwest of Waco in southwestern Bosque County. The first known settler was John R. Cox in 1865. The first school was constructed in 1876. John R. Lane and his sons arrived in 1877 and built a church the next year. After completion of the church, the community changed its name from Hollis Prairie to Lanes Chapel, after the Lane family. The Lanes Chapel school consolidated with the Mosheim public schools in the early 1930s. Church membership was transferred to the Clifton Methodist Church in 1959. The church in Lanes Chapel then served as a community center.
