African Zion Church near 12th St

I may be off with the street, but I know that the escaped slaves that settled in Fond du Lac had built a church near the Fond du Lac River, I want to say near the "swamp land" where Fond du Lac High (later Goodrich) was built.

It stood on stilts and was probably decomissioned and torn down around 1924 when the remaining black community moved out of Fond du Lac (and possibly for the development of the city near the future site of Goodrich).

A friend of mine is writing a book on this community and has been trying with no success for years to find a photo, drawing or some type of artist rendering of this structure. Any help would really be appreciated. She's been working so hard on this for well over a decade. Thank you!
