The Mount Zion Baptist Church is a significant aspect of black history. The church was a key location for blacks to defend their community during the Tulsa Race Riot. The church was a fixture in the black community serving not only as a place to worship, but also serving as a safe haven for the black community. Still in operation today, the church represents the local black community's commitment to sustain their community. The church was burned in the Race Riot, but as since been rebuilt.
