Henry's Chapel Community - In 1874, Rev. William Porter donated 5 acres of land for a school (called Sharp Top), a Presbyterian Church and a cemetery to provide services to area farmers following abandonment of Knoxville (4 miles west) upon the founding of Troup (6 miles northwest). Only the cemetery remains as a physical reminder of the original community. Texas Historical Commission marker
