Though it is generally accepted that the area's proper name is "Mountain Top," there has been some debate about whether it should actually be "Mountaintop." The local historical society uses the spelling "Mountain Top".[1] The United States Postal Service uses the spelling "Mountain Top" for ZIP Code 18707 and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation spells it Mountain Top on a Pennsylvania driver's license. The local newspaper, however, the Mountaintop Eagle,[2] uses the Mountaintop spelling in both its title as well as any reference to its location.
