      The church land was formerly owned by Col. Richard P. Taylor and later donated to the church original Trustees in 1870 (documented as being "6 to 8 acres" on the original will record).

      Surveyed by members of Big Zion A.M.E. Zion Church, members of the Granville County Genealogical Society and many helpful volunteers. Photographs by Allen Dew and Sallyann Hobson.
