How did the Zion Stone Church get its name?

In this continuing historical series, I'll be visiting the village of Kreidersville and viewing one of the oldest churches in the county. Mr. Harold Smith, president of the Northampton Historical Society and historian of Zion Stone Church, will give all of us a local history lesson.

"As a youth, each Sunday my sister Dorothea and I attended Sunday School at Zion Stone Church," he recalls. The year is 1930.
