What is the history of the Lutherische Zionskirche at the corner of 19th and Peoria? There are no walls, and you can see through the iron fence the empty, sunken yard that's taken over where the church should be. There's nothing to steal, and it looks abandoned, but the doors are locked and the church is lit up at night. Who maintains the ruin, and why do they keep it locked with just grass inside?
