Description (see definition): A large flat-topped mountain (2,730 m) forming the eastern end of Festive Plateau in the Cook Mountains. This mountain was probably sighted by the British National Antarctic Expedition (BrNAE) (1901-04) under Captain Robert F. Scott, who gave the name "Mount Mill," after British Antarctic historian Hugh Robert Mill, to a summit in nearby Reeves Bluffs. This area was mapped by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) from surveys and U.S. Navy photography (1959-63). A prominent mountain does not rise from the bluffs, and since the name Mount Mill is in use elsewhere in Antarctica, the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) (1965) altered the original name to Mill Mountain and applied it to the prominent mountain described.
