Best known for its nature preserves, magnificent estates, and pleasant residential character, the village of Muttontown dates back to the 1600's. During the early Twentieth Century, many of New Yorks financial leaders established their grand residences on these majestic hills located only 25 miles from Manhattan. Two former estates of New York City families are now known as The Muttontown Golf and Country Club and The Woodcrest Club. The well-known 500-acre Muttontown Preserve offers miles of public cross country skiing and equestrian trails, estate grounds, and natural parkland. The towns residents enjoy access to universities, premier shopping, fine and casual dining, the LIRR, and a short drive to boating. Their central location allows getting onto major east/west and north/south highways in minutes.
