    Originally known as Turkey Knob, an early community in this area changed its name after 1876, when the T&P Railroad built a depot and section house nearby and named it Handley. Beginning in 1882, local Protestant denominations worshiped in a union church building. In 1905, J. Dan Thomas invited approximately 22 men and women into his home to organize the Handley Church of Christ. The congregation soon moved to a larger space and has constructed several buildings over the years, remaining at this location since 1919. Throughout the church's history, members have maintained a significant presence in the community through worship, Bible study, mission work and outreach. (2005)
