The best route to take to get to the cemetery is to take S. 176th Street (in Lancaster County) until you reach Hickman Road, then drive east on Hickman Road until it turns into 'L' Road at the Otoe County line. The cemetery is 2.0 miles east of the intersection of 176th Street and Hickman Road.
The Mount Zion Cemetery was established in on June 18th, 1895 by the United Brethren Church, located 1.0 mile to the north of the cemetery. The church ultimately disbanded and the cemetery was abandoned in 1929.
