Mount Zion was twelve miles northwest of Gatesville in northwestern Coryell County. The community was established by settlers from other southern states after the Civil War and grew up around a two-room schoolhouse and a Methodist church. In 1904 the school had sixty-four students and one teacher; it was consolidated with the Jonesboro system in 1935. The church merged with a church in Pancake the same year. No evidence of the community appeared on county highway maps in the 1980s.
