Mt. Olive Baptist Church

Mt. Olive Baptist Church was founded in 1818 in Hartwood.  It is the oldest active black church in the county and up until after the Civil War, had a white minister because blacks, whether free or slave, could not legally congregate without a white person present.  In four years the church will be 200 years old.
