Long Description:

James O'Kelly, a pioneer of Methodism, founder of the Christian Church, came to Chatham County in 1794 and gathered a congregation, which eventually took the name of O'Kelly Chapel. In 1797, he began a congregation in Orange County known as Damascus Christian Church. He also began Martha's Chapel in Chatham County in 1803. James O'Kelly served these three congregations as a circuit-riding preacher for a number of years.

In addition to the Historic Marker, a plaque from the United Church of Christ is located in front of the chapel.
