In 1883, members of Zion United Church of Christ (formerly Zion Evangelische Kirche) wanted to establish a burial ground for their loved ones away from the hustle and bustle of a fast-growing city. In what was then countryside, they found 49 acres of gently sloping land that featured an abundance of shade trees. Here, they knew their family members could rest in peace. Though neighborhoods and roads have grown around the cemetery in the intervening century, the serene nature of the land remains.
Zion is an Endowed Care Cemetery, and as such, has funds placed in trust which may be only used for the preservation and beautification of our cemetery. Zion is also non-sectarian and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all.
If you would like to spend a quiet hour walking among the tall pine, oak, and sycamore trees while you listening to the robins and cardinals, feel free to rest on one of the benches scattered along the walking trail. Our grounds are family and pet friendly.
If you are interested in any of the services we provide, please contact our office at (314) 721-8631 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
