Welcome to our website...

The Prairie Chapel School is the lone landmark that bears the name of this community, settled by German and Austrian immigrants in the late 1800’s. Its white wood frame, which sits atop a windswept hill in the center of the community, serves as a reminder of the past, when society and its people moved at a slower, simpler pace. As the world seems to spin faster each day in its technological whirlwind of cellular phones, pagers, and Internet access, this old school building reminds one of a time when horses and wagons, wood stoves, apples and oranges for Christmas, one good pair of shoes, going to church on Sunday morning and taking an afternoon nap, and visiting with neighbors on the front porch were the foundations of this rural community. So strong are the ties that descendants of the original immigrants still live today on many of the farms and ranchers in the community. Click here to read more about our history.

We have been in the process for several years of restoring this building as a museum, and we have placed a historical marker. This school is located one mile from President Bush's ranch and is probably one of the few remaining schoolhouses in McLennan County.

The school offers memorabilia
