Mount Olivet Presbyterian Church is a historic Presbyterian church located near Winnsboro, Fairfield County, South Carolina. It was built in 1869, and is a one-story, rectangular, front-gabled stuccoed brick building. The stucco is scored to resemble cut stone and the church sits on a granite foundation. The large cemetery northwest of the church contains several historically and artistically significant gravestones dating back to 1795 and is enclosed by a cast-iron fence.[2][3]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
