This rural cemetery has regular care and is in good shape. A couple of monuments have disappeared into some over grown lilacs and a couple other monuments were broken off and lying flat at ground level. There are indications that some of the old monuments have been replaced. There is no longer a church at this location. The gate states ' Zion Cemetery 1859-1963'. 

The Dakota county cemetery records compilation lists this cemetery as: Zion Evangelical Association Cemetery, established 1860. 2+ acres. Located Section 23, NE 1/4. Hogan Avenue between 250th St. and Highway 50.

In "History of Dakota County and the city of Hastings", by Rev. Edward D. Neill he wrote: '...The Evangelical Association cemetery is situated by the church whose name it bears (page 397 [lists as] section 23). The first person buried here was Mrs. Mary Ista, some time in 1860 (page 398).'

This cemetery was transcribed in 1996.
