In 1892 Jim Kelly leased a location from the Indian Agency in Muskogee and established a trading post southeast of Bakers Junction

In 1893 Kelly made a contract deal with the Frisco Railroad Company to move the trading post and settlement near the railroad track east of Bakers Junction. In return they would name the town after him. 

Kelly built a large single story wood frame building at this location and moved his goods by wagon three-fourths of a mile north to the new location. The store served an extensive area of Indian and white farmers in the area. Soon a stone building was constructed across the street east of the Kelly Mercantile Store and Huber Hughes established a bank in the building. The railroad established a depot along its line, a cotton gin was constructed west of the railroad, a large wood frame two story building called the Oakleaf Hotel was constructed across the street north of the Kelly Mercantile Store, a post office was established and several homes were built, to constitute the ville of Kellyville.
