From Epworth, England To Epworth By The Sea...
Epworth By The Sea is named in honor of the boyhood home of
John and Charles Wesley, founders of Methodism.
In 1784, John Wesley tenderly recalled his home by writing in his famous journal, "I rode to Epworth, which I still love beyond most places in the world." Though he is said to have ridden 250,000 miles and preached 45,000 sermons, Epworth still held his heart.
