Anderson Township Five Mile Chapel

Five_Mile_Chapel_in_Anderson_Township_lg

A hidden treasure in Anderson Township!

The Five Mile Chapel is located between I-275 and US52 at 6977 Five Mile Rd. in Anderson Township.

The property for this church and cemetery was donated by Jacob Markley, the son of early Anderson Township settler John Markley in 1844.  There are Markley family graves in the adjascent cemetery which predate the curch.

This early United Brethren church appeared on the 1847, 1869 and 1884 maps as a United Brethren Church.  It is one of three early Anderson Township churches.

The property fell into disrepair until a dedicated group of volunteers adopted the church, repaired the structure and created the current Five Mile Chapel Society.  We continue to be forever in their debt and they continue to maintain the property today.
