Inscription.  This church was founded in 1837 as Mt. Olivet Methodist Episcopal Church, South. Original trustees were Joseph Critchlow, John Hay, Benjamin Johnson, Benjamin King, John Matthews, Phillip Owen, and Nathaniel Owen. Originally, the church was located on Williams Road on land purchased in 1839 from John Hay and Samuel Bittick. In 1858, the congregation moved to the Nolensville Turnpike about one-half mile south of this site. The second church building was heavily damaged during the Civil War. On September 14, 1894, land was purchased here and this building, with its tall steeple and church bell which is rung every Sunday morning, was erected. Over time, stained glass windows were installed in memory of faithful members.
 
Erected 1997 by Williamson County Historical Society.
