|Description :||Mt. Zion Baptist Church was founded in 1896 as an offshoot of the St. Paul Baptist Church, Berkley. Church members purchased a house from Joseph Baker for $25 and used the lumber from the house to build the first Mt. Zion Church (known as the plum board church). The church burned in 1916. In 1918 this structure was built on E. Berkley Ave at Obendorfer St. In November 1976, ground was broken for a new building on Middlesex St.
