Zion Hill, a rural community eight miles north of Gilmer off Farm Road 2263 in north central Upshur County, grew up around a church established sometime before 1900. In the mid-1930s the community had a school, a church, and number of houses. The school was closed after World War II, and in the mid-1960s only a church and a few widely scattered houses remained. In 1990 Zion Hill was a dispersed rural community.
