Mount Olive, Jefferson County, Alabama Census-designated place & Unincorporated community in Alabama, United States

Mount Olive, also spelled Mt. Olive is an unincorporated community and a census-designated place (CDP) in Jefferson County, Alabama. Its location is in the suburbs of Birmingham. As of the 2010 census, the population of the community is 4,079. Mount Olive is bordered on the south and the east by the town of Gardendale, and in fact, some areas that had previously been in Mount Olive have been annexed into Gardendale over the years. Running along part of the border between Mt. Olive and Gardendale is the major expressway, Interstate 65. Eventually, part of Birmingham's Northern Beltline will cut through northwestern sections of Mt. Olive. Mt. Olive has its own elementary school, and was formerly the home of a junior high school. Beyond elementary school, most of its students currently go on to Bragg Middle School and eventually Gardendale High School, though that status is subject to change in the next year as Gardendale breaks away from the Jefferson County Schools to form its own district, which by law is bounded by the city limits; both systems are in negotiations as of December 2014 to determine of Mount Olive students can still attend Gardendale schools.
