The Historical Marker sign located near the Church and Cemetery reads:
Lutherans In Monroe County
German Pioneers who began settling this area in 1828 formed Monroe County's first Lutheran Church here in 1834. The Rev Friedrich Schmid became their first pastor, traveling by horse-back from Ann Arbor. The sprawling congregation incorporated as Zoar Church in 1838 and built a log church.
Trinity and Zion Church in Monroe, Holy Ghost in Raisinville, and Immanuel in Ida all developed from Zoar by 1849. Zoar became St Paul's Lutheran in 1859, completing a one room brick church here in 1860. The larger church built here in 1973 testifies to the enduring faith of this Lutheran country congregation.
