Excerpt from Fifty Years of History of the Ohio Wesleyan University, Delaware, Ohio: 1844 1894

The Ohio Wesleyan University was founded in 1844. It owes its location, if not its establishment at that particular date, to the famous White Sulphur Spring in Delaware. This spring had early attracted the attention of tourists and seekers after health. In order to accommodate these, and to encourage further patronage, two enterprising citizens, Judge Thomas W. Powell and Columbus W. Kent, erected in the year 1833, on a spacious lot, embracing the spring, a fine hotel, which soon became known to the citizens as the Man sion House. The waters were salubrious, and the locality healthful; and for some years the Mansion House was kept in successful operation. But the town of Delaware was not very widely known, and was not easily accessible; and it was, perhaps, too early in the history of the State to hope for large returns from a business enterprise of this kind; and, at last, in the Summer of 1841, Judge Powell, who had become the sole proprietor, concluded to abandon the attempt to establish a Western watering-place.
