Mission Statement

The Zoar Community Association's mission is to preserve, interpret, and celebrate the culture and heritage of the Society of Separatists and of Historic Zoar Village.

Description

The Zoar Community Association (ZCA) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1967. ZCA operates Historic Zoar Village in Zoar, Ohio, on behalf of the Ohio History Connection. Zoar Village was founded in 1817 by a group of over 200 German Separatists seeking escape from religious persecution in their homeland. These Separatists thrived as a unique society for more than 80 years, making Zoar Village one of the most successful communal settlements in American history. Today, Zoar Village is made up of approximately 75 families living in homes built from 1817 to the present.
