1. Religious Traditions Marker
Inscription. Early settlers of Myersville brought with them more than their families and belongings. They also brought their religious traditions.

The first church in the Myersville area was the Jerusalem Church north of town. Formed in the 1700s it served several faith communities.

In 1815 the Church of the United Brethren in Christ was organized. It eventually became Mt. Zion United Methodist Church. The present church building was completed at the north end of Main Street in 1927.

St. Paul's Lutheran Church in the center of town was organized October 25. 1851 and the church was built in 1852. In 1913 members of the Church of the Brethren branched out and built the Myersville Church of the Brethren in the south end of town.

These churches, along with their historical cemeteries, are a constant reminder of the important place religion had in molding the community.
