Zion First Missionary Church Cemetery
Colbert County Alabama; Cherokee Alabama; Cemetery; African American Cemetery; African American History
When the Zion First Missionary Church was sold to the African American congregation, the land next to the building found use as a cemetery for the African American congregation. As such, the cemetery is strictly filled with only African American congregants. The cemetery is located next to the Zion Missionary Baptist church in Cherokee, Alabama off of Lee Hwy.
