Throughout the 16 years that I have lived in Mount Zion I have had nothing but a great experience. Never once in my 15 years have I had to worry about my safety or the safety of my friends and family. All of the people I live around, make me feel that if I ever need anyone to go to for help they are always willing to step in and help. If I could change something about Mount Zion Township it would probably be that we need different types of restaurants around here. We only have a few different types of restaurants, and if we want different types of food besides the ones we have around here then we have to travel fifteen to twenty minutes.

Mt. Zion as a whole is very clicky. If you have a nice house, fancy car & popular clothes people are friendly & welcoming to your face. Shallow seems to be the norm yet most people here don't even recognize their own shallowness because it's the norm. Very preferential in treatment of kids in sports or extra curricular school activities based on parent community status. The schools have a good rating but you'll have to put up with the arrogance and liberal theology there. The moral feelings of the quiet majority are stepped on to avoid offending the flamboyant immoral few in the high school. You'll need to open your wallet to live here, real estate cost is 30-40% higher than nearby. Crime is low. Property taxes are well over average for the region. Mt. Zion is one of those used to be a great place to raise a family type of communities. But if you are into clique shallow relationships you'll feel right at home still. This from an honest 45 year Mt. Zion resident "outsider".
I've lived in Mt.Zion for a couple of years and I have never had any bad experiences. Being here everyone gets to know you extremely well and are friendly whenever I see people that I see on a regular basis at my workplace. However, one thing I would like to change about this town is that I would like Mt.Zion to have more of a nightlife and more things to do socially.
