Mount Zion Baptist Church

Mount Zion Baptist Church


Mount Zion Baptist Church was the second black church organized in the Anniston area and is the oldest one still in existence. It has been the central social force of the Zion Hill neighborhood, a black residential area characterized as "throwaway land" because it was hilly and deemed not fit for farming. The congregation dates from 1879, when a small group met in a brush arbor near the railroad tracks, southeast of the present location. Members raised money for the present lot and for the buildings occupying it, church members also designed and built the current edifice. The basement was built in 1890 and was used for worship until the first floor was completed in 1894.
