Visit Epworth Heights

Epworth is a summer resort with a 127-year history. When it was established 1894, it was written that it was “for the purchase and improvement of grounds to be occupied for summer homes, for camp meetings, for meetings of assemblies or associations and societies organized for intellectual or scientific culture and for the promotion of the cause of religion and morality.” Today, Epworth continues to offer families a seasonal respite on the shores of Lake Michigan.
