The Spring That Moved Overnight

Local lore has it that in the late 1800s, a spring was supernaturally moved during a rainstorm from a farmer's property onto church property after he put up a fence and forbade congregants to use it.

[LC, 09/24/2015]

The Epworth United Methodist Church has cared for the Spring ever since it magically moved onto its property in 1872. "Even in the worst drought, the spring has never run dry."
