The name Muttama is derived from the local Aboriginal word meaning "like it" or "take it".
Mining in the area began in the 1860s and Muttama prospered with the discovery of gold at Muttama Reef in 1882.

The village was served by a railway station on the Tumut branch from 1886-1975, when passenger services were discontinued. All goods traffic on line was suspended after flooding in 1984.
