General Note

  • Slides: 1. there are two contributing buildings on the property, both historically significant. The most imposing is the present sanctuary of the church (built 1920), while the other structure (currently utilized as the church office and for education and fellowship) is the previous 1903 sanctuary and later parsonage, 2. looking southeast toward former sanctuary/parsonage & present Mt. Zion, 3. the rear of the building, the east side, is identical to the front except there is only the grouping of three peaked stained glass windows in the center (this is of "Jesus in Gethsemane") with no companion windows on either side, 4. looking northwest at the rear of Mt. Zion, 5. the present church is a one-story four gabled masonry vernacular edifice constructed of cast stone blocks with a towering steeple of the same construction anchoring the northwest corner of the building.
  • A nearby plaque reads, "Organized in the late 1800s at Lake Buddy, this congregation moved into Dade City and became known as Mount Zion AME Church. In 1903, with 29 members, a frame meeting house was built. It was later modified to serve as the parsonage. The present edifice, with its distinctive steeple and stained glass windows, was dedicated in 1920 and was the first Protestant church of masonry construction in Pasco County. God has blessed Mount Zion through its storms and tempests."
