This cemetery is located about four miles west of Chaska, Minnesota along highway 212. The cemetery has regular care and is in good shape. It appears that many of the older burial monuments have been replaced. There is a church at this location and the church appears to still be used.

Just northwest of this cemetery is a private farm. I was told by a visitor to the Zoar cemetery that this nearby farm was the original Lenzen family farm. This visitor told me that there were a couple of unmarked baby burials along the edge of the farms curtledge, near a current (1998) tower antennae. I did not visit the site.

In "History of the Minnesota Valley" [1882] by Rev. Edward D. Neill, he wrote: ‘... The German Reformed Church was built in 1873 on the farm of Diedrich Lenzen. He subsequently deeded the lot with two acres of land to the church, and a small cemetery was attached.’ (page 382).

In the "Compendium of History and Biography of Carver and Hennepin Counties, Minnesota" [1915] edited by Maj. R.I. Holcombe and William H. Bingham, t hey wrote: "The German Reformed Church of this township was first organized about 1870.  In 1873, Diederich Lenzen deeded two acres of his farm in the southwest quarter of section 10, half a mile west of Dahlgren Station, and a good church building was erected thereon and a cemetery established in connection."  (page 237).

This cemeteries burial monuments were transcribed during the spring of 1998.
