Located immediately to your left and across Route 50 from Gilbert's Corner, the Mt. Zion Old School Baptist Church was built in 1851. The church was a place of worship for Old School Baptists until 1980 and served various purposes during the Civil War, including a rendezvous point for Mosby’s Rangers, a hospital and prison, and a battleground. The adjacent cemetery contains more than 240 marked headstones, and a War of 1812 veteran. The site offers seasonal guided tours and living history programs and is available to rent for weddings and other community gatherings.

Well maintained and significant site. Met with two historians there and learned a great deal about Col. John S. Mosby and his Rangers. Fascinating!
