Muttontown Preserve

Muttontown is a village located within the Town of Oyster Bay in Nassau County, on Long Island, in New York, United States. The population was 3,497 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Greater Oyster Bay area, anchored by Oyster Bay.

The area was historically inhabited by the Matinecock Native Americans, and European colonists began to settle in the area during the 1600s. During colonial times, the area was used to raise sheep for wool and meat.

Muttontown was incorporated as a village in 1931. The name of the village stems from its former use as a pasture for sheep.

Zog of Albania bought the local Knollwood Estate in 1951 but sold it in 1955. The Benjamin Moore Estate was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.

Muttontown is served by the Jericho Union Free School District, the Locust Valley Central School District, the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Central School District, and the Syosset Central School District.[15] As such, students who attend public schools and reside in Muttontown attend school in one of these four districts, depending on where they live in the village.
