Some Area Info: Sutton, population of approximately 1029, is located in the northern end of Caledonia County, was chartered by the name of Billymead to Jonathan Arnold and associates in 1782. In 1812, the townspeople voted to change the name to Sutton, as they were disenchanted with William Arnold, Jonathan's son and the town namesake, who had become a disruptive drunk. The resident who came up with the new name was Joctan Putnam who originally came from Sutton, Mass. A large portion of the northern section of the town consists of Willoughby Lake State Forest. Also located in the town are a number of trout ponds, including Bean, Vail, Duck, Blake, Marl and Dolloff as well as a number of streams and the West Branch of the Passumpsic River. Mount Hor towers 2656 feet above sea level and is the highest point in town.
