Blocks of limestone that once formed the old Detroit post office were used to construct the Zion Lutheran Church in 1933. This Neo-Gothic-style church, designed by the firm of Maul & Lentz of Detroit, was dedicated on May 27, 1933. In 1882, West Prussian immigrants had organized the congregation and built a frame church on this site. Services were conducted exclusively in German until 1925. It became an integrated congregation in 1961.
