Inscription. Ohio Wesleyan owes its location to the initial efforts to establish a resort for healing purposes on the site of the Sulphur Spring. When the business faltered, Adam Poe, a pastor and several citizens purchased it and gave it to the Methodists for a Methodist College in 1841. The Sulphur Spring has served ever since as a gathering spot for students and faculty.
 
Erected by Ohio Wesleyan University Class of 1954.
