Wallace Chapel, a rural community eleven miles north of Gilmer off U.S. Highway 271 in north central Upshur County, was settled sometime before 1900 around a church. In the mid-1930s the community had a school, a church, and number of houses. The school was closed after World War II, and in the mid-1960s only a church and a few widely scattered houses remained. No population estimates were available.
