Mt. Zion Community Church


category : Historic Churches
This nondenominational restored historical country church is located adjacent to Big Hill Lake. Built for the Mt. Zion community and the Osage Indians settled along Big Hill Creek, this Methodist Episcopal church was forced to close in 1963. The church stood vacant for two decades with years of emptiness taking its toll on the building and the grounds. Local citizens restored the church in 1982. A ceiling fixture from the demolished Cherryvale Frisco Depot now lights the church interior. Sunday services are held weekly at 8-9am, allowing those who attend elsewhere to join their own churches. Weddings and funerals are still held at this historic church. The church was recognized as a Kansas Historical Site in July of 1979.


Address: Northeast of Cherryvale at 20052 Chase Road
