Mount Mutton views
The name Mount Mutton was acquired early in the 1800s when the village had to grow its own produce. There are two hills in the township the other being called Mount Beef. When the domestic animals were released for feed in the local area the sheep would gravitate to Mount Mutton and the cattle to Mount Beef! Thus these two hills acquired their specific titles.
