Inscription.  

Organized in September 1902 by Reverend G.W. Merriweather of San Antonio, the Mount Olive Baptist Church congregation first met in a small schoolhouse located on Paschall Street. The first structure was a small, white frame building but, as the congregation grew, a larger, modernized brick building was constructed in the 1960s. In addition to spiritual guidance in the community, the Mount Olive Baptist Church also provided music lessons for the youth, educational study groups, a mission chorus, a nutrition site for the elderly, transportation and vacation bible school. For more than a century, the church has stood as a beacon of light in the Kerrville community.
