Sutton is a town situated in southwestern Quebec. It is part of the Brome-Missisquoi Regional County Municipality in the administrative region of the Montérégie. The population as of the Canada 2011 Census was 3,906. Historically, Sutton is considered to be part of the Eastern Townships.HistoryLike many other towns and villages in the Eastern Townships, Sutton became home to many loyalists, following the American Revolution. In 1799 the first recorded loyalists immigrated to the area, among them Richard Shepherd, originally of New Hampshire. During the 19th century, new buildings were erected to serve the town's growing population, among them a school in 1808 (located on the road linking the town to nearby Abercorn) as well as the town hall built in 1859. In the decades that followed, Protestant and Roman Catholic churches were built as well as a railway station.Sutton officially became a municipality in 1892, and later a town in 1962. In 2002, the township of Sutton merged with the town of Sutton, roughly doubling the town's population, and vastly expanding the town's area. The economy has moved from one largely based on farming to one that is heavily reliant on tourism due to the opening of SUTTON ski resort in 1960. More recently Sutton has also become a popular destination for road biking, hiking and visits to vineyards making it an all-year tourist destination.Explore the family-friendly attractions of Sutton and add them to your vacation plans using our Canada travel route planning website.
