1852 in Zion, Centre County, Pennsylvania:1859, p. 458. "Zion. This village is in the west end of Walker township, and derived its name from Zion church, built by the Lutheran and German Reformed denominations in 1845, on a lot conveyed to them by George Shaffer, Esq., February 22d of that year. This church edifice was removed in 1882 and in its place a brick church edifice was erected by the Lutherans. The Evangelical church building was erected in 1859, and the Presbyterian, near the graveyard, was built not long since.

The land on the south side of Main Street was originally owned by Jacob Struble, who, with his brothers Daniel and Conrad, came from Union County and located in this vicinity many years ago. Struble sold to Jackson Clevenstine, who laid out and commenced selling lots as early as 1852. Mr. Clevenstine was the pioneer shoemaker of the place, and subsequently removed to Hublersburg, where he carried on the same business."
