Asbury's party spent the night with a merchant here, a Methodist. Their host's clerk told Rev. Jesse Lee (1758-1816) that his native New England needed circuit riders to preach the gospel there. He so impressed Lee with his earnestness that Lee later established churches from Connecticut to Maine. Asbury and his party spent "some time" in prayer here at St. David's Episcopal Church before continuing south.
