Town of Mount Olive... A Small Town with a Big Future!

Thank you for your interest in Mount Olive.  Located in Wayne County on the
border of Duplin County, Mount Olive is served by a network of highways with
US Highway 117 and NC Highway 55, linking the town to Interstate 40 and the
North Carolina Eastern Region’s Global TransPark. CSX rail service enters the
industrial area which adjoins the 3,700-foot runway airport. Seaports are
located one to two hours away at Wilmington and Morehead City.
We are located just south of Goldsboro, a Metropolitan Statistical Area which
includes Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, one of the premier military
installations in the world. Mount Olive is the second largest town in the county.
The Wayne County Public School system is one of the largest in southeastern
NC. Programs are offered to students in Kindergarten through 12th grade.
Mount Olive boasts a four-year institution of higher learning, Mount Olive
College. Customized training and programs for business and industry provided
by our schools and institutions are a plus in the area’s industrial recruitment.
Figures from the last census place the population of Mount Olive at 4,899.
Population within a 10-mile radius is approximately 35,000.
The Mount Olive area lies south of the Snowbelt and averages only five inches
of snow per year. The annual temperature averages 62 degrees F.
From historical mansions to comfortable bungalows, to downtown apartments,
from reasonable to extravagant- Mount Olive has it all within easy commutes to
shopping centers and business.
Beaches, museums, historic sites, state parks, the Civil War corridor, the
capital city of Raleigh and the mountains are within easy driving distance.  The
Mount Olive community supports two parks, Westbrook Park – with its one-of-a-
kind Kids World Playground – and Nelson Street Park. Nature lovers enjoy the
Cliffs of the Neuse State Park just minutes away. Each year on the last full
weekend in April, Mount Olive celebrates its agribusiness heritage with the NC
Pickle Festival – one of the best-known festivals in the state.

We are an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action/ Equal Housing Opportunity Employer.
