Mt. Zion Methodist Church  Marker  



Text:

On September 29, 1957, Mt. Zion Methodist Church, one of the first churches in this area, celebrated its 141st anniversary. Services were held first in a log structure, built from a schoolhouse. Tombstones in the church bear dates from 1796: unmarked graves are believed to be older. A weatherboard meeting house, erected about 1830, witnesses the advance and retreat of troops, fighting from Atlanta to Jonesboro. Mt. Zion has been a member of three great denominations ~ The Methodist Episcopal Church, The Methodist Episcopal South, and The Methodist Church. The present building was erected in 1939.
