Built in 1890, Mt. Zion Methodist Episcopal Church is located on a hillside overlooking Frederick Road, MD Route 144, from the south, midway between Rogers Avenue and Ellicott Mills Drive in the historic district of Ellicott City, Maryland. Mt. Zion is one of five remaining historically black Methodist Episcopal churches in Howard County, Maryland, that is more than one hundred years old. It is three bays wide by four bays deep and two stories high. This frame building, covered with asbestos shingles, rests on a stone foundation and has a gabled roof. A belfry sits on the apex of the gable. Windows are gothic arched double-hung, holding four-over-four panes of glass with a large circular window on the north elevation. Mt. Zion is a fine example of the Gothic Revival Style of the late nineteenth century. Archival Pigment Print on Hahnemuhle Harman Gloss Baryta - Digital Photography.
