Zion Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery-Golden Ring

Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church Cemetery is located at 7200  Golden Ring Road.  The church, according to their website began around 1865, however, there are some indications it was founded in pre-civil war times. 

The church has a large cemetery, where a walk through will tell you many details of its past.  The majority of headstones are old and the names hold the story of many past German immigrants into the area. 

If you have information to share about the church or the cemetery, please send it to germanmarylanders@gmail.com
