The Baptist Church of Christ at Mt. Zion - Cass County, Texas

Mt. Zion Baptist Church - 2012
The Mount Zion Baptist Church of Christ was organized July 26, 1851 with twelve charter members. This sanctuary, built in 1885 on land donated by Isaac and Felix Grundy Lemmon, replaced the original 1851 log church building. Constructed of cypress and featuring a steeply pitched roof and double entry doors, this structure reflects a simple style typical of 19th century rural Texas churches. A historic cemetery dating to 1864 is adjacent to the building. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1991.

A compilation of church records from 1851 - 1984 were compiled by members, and published in a 148 page document.  A copy of this document is located below for your use.
