Information & photo submitted by Tom Roberts

Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church was established in or about 1847.   The cornerstone of the first church building was laid 19 Oct 1850. ..Carol Dean  

The first Zion Church -- a log building -- was torn down (or burned would have to check notes) about 1919 and the new one planned. The corner stone for the second building was laid 8/20/20. The new church was dedicated Jan. 16, 1921 and on that day my grandmother HALLIE NAUSLEY BOST was confirmed into the church.-- Tom Roberts
