Five Mile Chapel
The property for this church was donated by Jacob Markley, an early settler in Anderson Township, Ohio in 1844.
The Five Mile Chapel Society would like to express our sincere thanks to the Wynne Family for taking on a project to clean and repair a number of grave markers in our cemetery. We also want to compliment Maggard Memorials on the fine job they did on the Wynne family project and a second project to reset one of our largest markers on the Markley family plot. A tree had fallen on this treasured marker and Maggard Memorials was able to reset and repair the damage. Thank you to all.
We invite you to come visit our Chapel any time. We offer solitude, a piece of history, a nice stroll or whatever you need to lift your spirits.
