Take 1396 North from Hwy.82. It is on the edge of Allen's Creek.
This cemetery and Allen's Point are both named for  Wilson Bruce Allen.

Church there was in 1842. First record of a School at Allen's Chapel was in 1852.

Allen's Chapel Methodist Church and Cemetery Historical Marker
Allen's Chapel Methodist Church and Cemetery In 1842, a Methodist Episcopal Church, South, congregation organized and built a log chapel on land given by Wilson Allen. Early leaders were the Revs. J.H. Graham and J.W.P. McKenzie; trustees and family names included Allen, Hamil, Ramsey, Wheeler, Spence, Stroud, Meade, Dutton, Johnson, Cobb, Massengale and Prickett. The settlement was called Allen's Chapel Community. Due to declining attendance, the church disbanded in 1916. Ministering again to the larger church community, former members gave the church and its fixtures to the local Vineyard Grove Baptist congregation in 1926. The graveyard, still used and maintained by a community cemetery association, remains a landmark to the early settlement. (2002)
