     The Chapin School was begun for Marys Creek Community in the late 1870s in a log cabin on land deeded by Ivory H. Chapin (2 mi. SE). In 1884 the school was moved one mile west to a 2-room frame house on Mary's Creek on land donated by J. Fielding Dunlap (.5 Mi. S). It was moved again in 1936, to a rock structure on Chapin Road. In 1961, the Fort Worth Independent School District annexed the Chapin Common School District. Chapin School continued to be used for an elementary school, however, until 1968, when it closed.
