Zion Lutheran Church - Mt. Carmel, Illinois



    Pamphlet - Erwin Weber - 1975


The congregation celebrated its 125th anniversary in 1963. Daniel Scherer was serving as pastor in Mt. Carmel and in nearby Jordan Creek at the time of his death in 1852. His grave is in the Sand Hill Cemetery. The drawing shows the church as it appeared in 1975. It has changed little in appearance since 1880. The building is thought to be an enlargement of the church used by Daniel Scherer (1846-1852).
