A few weeks ago I launched a new series on the blog called Small Town Charm. In my first post I talked about my recent visit to Medina, TX. This week I decided to launch a recent trip to Chappell Hill. Chappell Hill is located about 30 minutes outside of Houston Metropolitan Area just past Hempstead on Highway 290. Back in April I visited it for the first time during Bluebonnet season and shared my experience at the Bluebonnet Festival which takes place in April.
Fast forward a few months later and I stopped through there a second time to get a taste of their charming downtown area. They have several places in this city with so much history to include a church built in the late 1800's complete with stained glass windows and pews.
If you travel a little further east, you'll find a Lavender Farm where you can pick your own bunches during harvest season. They also serve delicious lavender ice cream and you can pick up an array of goodies all lavender scented, of course, in their gift shop. My personal favorite purchase during my last trip was lavender infused honey. I put that in my coffee for weeks on end to give it a delicious floral flavor.
There is a ton of small town charm all over the city. You can walk down a few of the streets to see house listed on the National Register of Historic Places. If you stop on main street I would grab a cold drink at the 291 Ice House or just look around at The Bluebonnet House. There are other adorable places to pick up goodies for your home or garden up and down that area. Finally, as you head back to Highway 290, don't forget to visit the Chappell Hill Sausage Company!
