Hometown USA! The people here are friendly and willing to help a neighbor anytime.
There is unfortunately a drug problem in the area we hope will end soon. This may be attributed to the minimal work opportunities available.

Sutton is a very quiet town, a place to hide and never be seen. There is quite a bit of culture to find here and there is always recreation to be involved in. It is a sleepy little "American, Small Town". There is a lake and a river to hunt, fish, boat, and picnic around. There is a great sense of family and friendly neighbors. However, it is a poor town with a lot of poor people and culture that goes with being poor and country, but the people are also what makes the town a place to be comfortable in.
Sutton is a wonderful town in the center of West Virginia. It has a great lunch restaurant named P.J. Berry's and a wonderful restaurant named Cafe Cimino which specializes in fine Italian cuisine. The town is located directly on the river and provides wonderful recreation to all who care to enjoy. The streets in the town are still the old, cobblestone streets that they were originally paved with during the middle of the century.
