Learn more about the Zion Historical Society
Established in 1967
The Zion Historical Society was established in 1967 by its first president, Wesley Ashland, a successful Zion jeweler. It consists of a general membership and is governed by a twelve-member Board of Directors. The Society’s main focus is maintaining Shiloh House, the home of Zion’s founder, Dr. John Alexander Dowie. The Society maintains a museum collection in Shiloh House. Artifacts of the period, many the personal property of the late Dr. and Mrs. Dowie, are on display. The Society continues to build on its collection through donations of photographs, documents, and artifacts by both past and present Zion residents. The Zion Historical Society is headquartered in Shiloh House. The Board of Directors meets there on the third Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. The public is always welcome.
