MT. ZION METHODIST CHURCH

On September 29, 1957, Mount Zion Methodist Church, one of the first churches in this area, celebrated its 141st anniversary. Services were held first in a log structure, built for a schoolhouse. Tombstones in the church bear dates from 1796; unmarked graves are believed to be older. A weatherboard meeting house, erected about 1830, witnessed 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 Church, South, and The Methodist Church. The present building was erected in 1939.
