This Methodism museum as well as john house was actually given accreditation that is full by archives council, the libraries and museums councils. The accreditation is basically a special scheme tasked with the role of putting up standards that regulate establishments of museums in a particular country. The chapel was able to meet and even exceed the minimum requirement set by such bodies.
Following the chapel meeting all the stipulated standards as per the accreditation scheme requirement, it eventually became a museum. Following its dramatic history, it became very popular and even some areas or cities were named after it.
During the census taken in 2010, statistics showed that around 44,092 people resided in that area. The 2003 movement to make the place even bigger, large and popular by simply incorporating other communities to it did not succeed.
Resident mostly chooses this area because of it closeness to interstate seventy five and also interstate 275. These two interstates are 25 miles or kilometers north of bay area of Tampa, downtown and some several major locales. Adjacent to the Wesley south is the new Tampa region which was part of the incorporated Tampa.
The chapel was actually the first church of Methodist built particularly for celebration of the vital Holy Communion and also to be used as preaching venue. In year 1891 the church simply transformed so as to commemorate Wesley death centenary. A lot of marble pillars were collected from many Methodist churches all over the world to substitute or replace the pillars originally used which were made of wooden chips.
In year 1972, the structure was deemed to be unsafe for people and was closed. After its closure, people all over the world raised a considerable amount of money to salvage the church. In year 1978, the chapel was once more re opened and this time in presence of queen Elizabeth the second and duke of Edinburgh.
