About Chapin

Located northwest of the City of Columbia, Chapin has grown into an attractive small town with a main street, preferred quality schools, and a location close to the 50,000-acre, deep-water Lake Murray, one of the Midland’s central attractions. New Home residents love Chapin because it is a town full of friendly people, it is close to many Midlands job centers and a close commute to the City, yet is a distinctly different, quiet place away from the hustle-bustle of the downtown area.
