John Wesley’s house at Frederica

June 09, 2019
JOHN WESLEY MOMENTS
DAVE HANSON


John Wesley lived at Fort Frederica on St. Simons Island for several months. It is not clear just where he lived while on the island. He probably lived with one of the families, perhaps the Hirds. Several times in his diary he mentions work being done in building his house, but we do not know where this house was located or if the building was ever completed. We do know that he was anxious to have the building constructed. One morning he went to the construction site at 4 a.m. and found no workers on the job. Naturally, he went looking for the workers!

How would you like to have worked for John Wesley?             

The Rev. Dave Hanson is a retired pastor and John Wesley scholar.
