Mountville was originally named Mount Pleasant, due to its elevated view of the surrounding countryside. However in 1842, the first post office was established and it was discovered that there was already a town in Pennsylvania registered under that name. Following a short-lived effort to rename the town “Mount Pleasant Too,” town elders settled on Mountville.
