Marker Text Erected in 1906, the Zion Lutheran Church was designed and built by church members in the uniquely American Carpenter Gothic tradition. Skilled at the construction of houses and barns, the farmers of Helotes created a church building reminiscent of their native German countryside. The central projecting tower entry and Gothic arched windows, which vary in size, define the facade. A new sanctuary was built in 1950 and the original was restored in 1991 using the original wood siding. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1997
