Mount Zion Lutheran Church

Mount Zion Lutheran Church

Mt. Zion Lutheran Church, formerly known as the Hamilton Reformed Grange Church, was built on the corner of 145th and Convent Avenue in 1888. In 2017, structural issues were discovered in the cellar and the church began preparation for a stabilization and masonry restoration project. Through the New York Landmarks Conservancy’s Sacred Sites program, Mt. Zion was able to secure a $50,000 grant to begin structural stabilization and masonry restoration. The exterior restoration work was also the opportunity to provide an accessible entrance into the church. The existing entry vestibule was modified in a careful and historically appropriate manner, by integrating a new ramp at the front of the church and a new vestibule entrance. All congregants and visitors will now be able to enter the building through the same vestibule. The project received unanimous approval from the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission, and was cited by the New York City Historic Districts Council as a 2020 notable project.
