Stafford's First African American Church. Founded May 16, 1818 near Roseville by Rev. Horace Crutcher, along with five others. Original place of worship was a slab wood arbor. Recognizing the importance of enlightening individuals both spiritually and academically, the Mt. Olive Community founded Mt. Olive School soon after the Civil War. "They hewed out the wilderness and drew up a highway for coming generations to have a path to follow."
