Mount Carmel

Mount Carmel is a rural community at the intersection of two country roads ten miles northeast of Jefferson and three miles northwest of Smithland in northeastern Marion County. The Mount Carmel school had forty-five black pupils and one teacher in 1899. In 1938 the community had a one-room schoolhouse, which accommodated thirty-five black elementary students. The school was consolidated with those of Jefferson by 1955, and in 1962 Mount Carmel consisted of a church and a cemetery. The church and cemetery were still identified on the 1983 county highway map.
