Mount Oliver is a borough in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, United States. It is a largely residential area defined by its business district, which runs across the length of the neighborhood, from the South Side Slopes to Carrick. It is situated atop a crest about three miles (5 km) west of the Monongahela River. Brownsville Road runs along this ridge, and connects S. Eighteenth Street in Pittsburgh with Carrick (Pittsburgh) and communities further east. It is surrounded entirely by the city of Pittsburgh, and it borders the neighborhood of Mount Oliver in Pittsburgh. It is named for Oliver Ormsby son of John Ormsby, who held the original land grant for the area from George III. Mount Oliver has experienced some tough times of late which are associated with the slippage of the steel-making capacity of the Pittsburgh region. The population was 3,970 at the 2000 census.
