Mount Zion Lutheran Church
(Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod)

421 West 145th Street at Convent Avenue
New York, N.Y. 10031







Mount Zion Lutheran Church has been at its present location since 1944, but the building was designed by Joseph Wolf in 1888 for the Hamilton Grange Reformed Church. In 1906, St. Matthew Evangelical Lutheran Church purchased the building and moved from their downtown location at 354 Broome Street, bringing along their German-language memorial tablets that remain at the church entrance.
