Vacant Former Zion Church Demolished
Ada, MN — An iconic piece of history in the center of the Ada community stands no more. The rusty, red church located at the corner of Highway 200 and West Main Street was demolished on Monday afternoon after standing for more than 120 years, according to the building’s owner, Bob Kinkade. The building initially started out as a Catholic Church before being purchased by the Zion Lutheran Church in 1919 where it was in operation until the late 1950s. The building sustained heavy damage in the 1997 flood and was last used as a museum. Kinkade said that over time, the building kept rotting away and it was time for it to come down.
Kinkade didn’t have specific plans for the lot now that the church is tore down. Visser Trenching was the contractor selected for the demolition.
