The Zion Baptist Church at Lebanon. – From the absence of records, the date of the organization of this church is involved in obscurity. Some time previous to the civil war, a small frame meeting-house was built by this church near the reservoir, which is said to have cost only about $50. Previous to this, the colored Baptists had occasional preaching at private houses. In 1867, the ground upon which the present brick church, on Pleasant street, stands, was purchased at a cost of $300. The church was erected soon after. The present membership is about 100.
