Known as the Father of Methodism, John Wesley is forever remembered in Reynolds Square in historic downtown Savannah. The monument constructed to honor him and his leadership of the Methodist Church stands in the center of the square. Many believe that this is the site of his residence and gardens and thus this is why it was chosen. Although Wesley only lived in Savannah for two short years, he was known for his religious ideals and for forming a Protestant sect that later became the Methodist Church.
The beautiful monument is made of exquisite black marble and portrays a bronze Wesley preaching to his followers.
