Smith Chapel

Smith Chapel was a predominantly black community that grew up around a Methodist church two miles west of Mexia near U.S. Highway 84 in northeastern Limestone county. A church and several scattered houses appeared on county highway maps of the area in the 1940s, but no name labeled the community at that time.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
