1. Bethesda-By-The-Sea Marker
Inscription. East of this marker is the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-By-The-Sea built in 1894 (last service held Easter Sunday April 12, 1925). Most of the worshippers came by boat as there was no roadway to the church, which was bordered on the east by an extensive marsh. The original Bethesda-By-The-Sea edifice built nearby in 1889 was the only church building within a radius of 150 miles.
 
Erected 1967 by Seminole Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution.
