What Sutton is Known for…
First settled by European colonists in 1704, it took only ten years for the town to become incorporated and was named Sutton. The name Sutton derives from the Anglo-Saxon name, which means “South Town.” Prior to the arrival of settlers, Nipmuc natives had lived in the area. During the 1600’s one of the Nipmuc natives travelled to England, and sold a large parcel of land to Edward Pratt who in turn would sell the land he acquired to residents in Massachusetts.
The early years in Sutton revolved around the produce, including the famous Sutton Beauty Apple. The emergence of agriculture in the area, opened the door to new industries, including the mills. Three large mills were built in the area, and created a new form of economy in the town. Today, the town is predominantly a rural residential town with many operating farms strewn throughout.
