    History in a Pecan Shell

    Originally known as Blossom Hill, Chapman was renamed to honor the family of pioneer John Chapman. A member of the Chapman Family fought at the battle of San Jacinto. The town had a post office from 1894 to 1904. The community had 12 people in 1895 which increased slowly to 150 just prior to WWII.
