Zion Baptist Church (BE 1248)

The church, one of two extant African-American congregations in the county, was founded in 1872. (The First Baptist Church of Burlington is the other.) The congregation developed from a group of local residents who held prayer services in the home of one of the members. A combination church and school building was erected in 1884, which was replaced by the present building in 1922. <html> <img src=“” width=“400” align=“right”> </html>

Located on Church Street in Walton, across from the Walton Cemetery, the building is a simple nave-plan frame structure with forward-facing gable roof. A gabled vestibule was added to the main facade at an unknown date.
