Our History sketchbooks

Héritage Sutton publishes History Sketchbooks twice a year, in the spring and fall, that reveal various chapters of local history to a large public. They include articles in both French and English. The authors are all history enthusiasts, professional or not, who explore various subjects with the critical eye that all historical exploration demands.

Twenty seven History Sketchbooks have been published so far.

If you have specific information or wish to explore and document a particular aspect of Sutton’s history, that of Brome County or the Eastern Townships in general, let us know. We will be glad to discuss the possibility of a collaboration.

David Marco of West Sutton

In the rolling hills west of Sutton—off the west side of Alderbrooke Road, between Dyer and Robinson roads—is a house shaded by towering white pines. This is the former property of David Marco and his family. In the first half of the last century, David Marco served as the local mechanic, carpenter, woodworker, and jack-of-all-trades for the hamlet of West Sutton.
