The Mt. Zion Primitive Baptist Church was established in 1878 beneath a weeping willow tree in Triana, Alabama under the leadership of Elder Eli Patton. On June 20, 1905 the present site was purchased in the New Haven community and a new sanctuary was erected. The third sanctuary was completed on July 27, 1997. Renovation of the older structure was completed in September of 2000.
