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 height 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.

That was the start of a long, loving relationship with the Sutton area. (To read in no. 30)
