Located within the Town of Oyster Bay, in Long Island, New York, the incorporated village of Muttontown is just one of the many areas within the Nassau County locality. Business Week considers Muttontown to be one of the wealthiest areas currently within America, and the village - including its surrounding areas - help to make up the area known as the "Gold Coast" of Long Island. Historically home to some of the most affluent families ever to call New York home, Muttontown is brimming with interesting local records, and the name of the village itself stems from the former use of the location as a pasturage for sheep.
