Zion Presbyterian Church (German Evangelical Reformed Church)

-A A +A
German Evangelical Reformed Church
1882, 1953, 1963. Northwest side of Pickens Rd., opposite the Huber Inn

The original side walls of this simple, rectangular frame meetinghouse are now sandwiched between a front vestibule, added in 1953, and a Sunday school wing to the rear, built ten years later. A small, louvered belfry still straddles the ridge of the roof. Carpenter Rudolph Zumbach fabricated the pulpit furniture and communion table. The congregation, organized as the German Evangelical Reformed Church, held German-language services as late as 1941. In 1945 the members elected to become a Presbyterian congregation.
