NIX CHAPEL, TX
NIX CHAPEL, TEXAS. Nix Chapel was a farming community off Farm Road 1975 and just east of the Union Ridge Community Center, ten miles northeast of Gilmer in northeastern Upshur County. The community was first settled sometime after the Civil War and developed around a church. In the mid-1930s Nix Chapel consisted of the church, a school, and a number of houses. The school was consolidated with the Union Ridge school and later with the Gilmer district, and the church disbanded. By the mid-1960s the community was no longer shown on highway maps.
