TAYLOR'S CHAPEL, TX

TAYLOR'S CHAPEL, TEXAS. Taylor's Chapel was an early settlement seventeen miles north of Rusk on what is now State Highway 135 in northern Cherokee County. The community grew up along the old Cherokee Trailqv in the 1850s and was named for an early church. It served as a stopping point for travelers entering the county around the time of the Civil War. In the mid-1930s Taylor's Chapel comprised a church and a number of houses. After World War II many residents left the area, but in the 1980s the church and a few scattered dwellings still remained.
