Zion Lutheran Church
Riverside, Burlington County
In 1872 a German Lutheran congregation was formed in Riverside, and
in 1900 they built this small, but interesting church. There was another
Lutheran church in Riverside, built in 1872 but no longer in existence,
of which it was written (in 1881): "The pastor resides in Camden
and no one in Riverside could give an intelligent idea of the organization
or pioneer membership of this church. It is composed mostly of Germans."
Perhaps this is a successor.
