The Zion Baptist Church is one of the oldest African-American churches in North Georgia. Once a part of the Marietta First Baptist Church, the slave membership began petitioning for a separate church in 1852. First Baptist granted letters to 88 African-American members for the purpose of constituting a new church. The old Church, built in 1888, was used until the 1980's when a new sanctuary was erected. Last year, the Church built another sanctuary on the corner of Cherokee & Lemon Streets. Currently, the building is the home of the Old Zion Heritage Museum.
