Inscription.  Organized in the late 1800s at Lake Buddy, this congregation moved into Dade City and became known as Mount Zion AME Church. In 1903, with 29 members, a frame meeting house was built. It was later modified to serve as the parsonage. The present edifice, with its distinctive steeple and stained glass windows, was dedicated in 1920 and was the first Protestant church of masonry construction in Pasco County. God has blessed Mount Zion through its storms and tempests.
 
Erected 1996 by Pasco Board of County Commissioners and the Pasco County Historical Preservation Committee.
