Sutton, Border Town

Sutton shares its southern border with Vermont, a boundary that’s mostly identified with a simple marker in the middle of a grandiose landscape.

Through archival documents as well as audio and video testimonials; this virtual exhibition highlights the social, economic and cultural impacts of this proximity and also shows how the residents’ relationship with the border has been shaped by the policies and events — wars, slavery, immigration, prohibition, economic realities — that have marked the last two centuries.

This exhibition was produced with the financial support of Digital Museums Canada.
