Zion is an unincorporated community in Central Township in southern Madison County, Missouri, United States.[1] It is located on U.S. Route 67 about ten miles south of Fredericktown, from which its mail comes.

A post office called Zion was in operation from 1880 until 1964.[2] The community took its name from a nearby church of the same name, which in turn was named after Mount Zion in West Asia.[3]
