Hollis Prairie, Texas

History

Pioneer area settler Joshua McCuistion donated land at this site for a Methodist chapel to serve the community of Hollis Prairie. Completed about 1880 adjacent to a schoolhouse, it was built by John R. Lane and his sons, for whom the settlement was later named. The oldest marked grave in the church cemetery is that of Plonzo "Pompey" Cox (1840-1880). Regular worship services here were discontinued in 1960 and the Lanes Chapel Memorial Association was established to restore and maintain the building and grounds. A homecoming is held at this site each June. - Historic Marker Text.  Marker erected 1981. Location: from Clifton, take SH 6 south about 3.9 miles, take FM 2602 south about 9.6 miles to cemetery.
