Sutton, ND was founded in 1910 and was named for a local farmer, John Sutton. It is no longer listed in the US Census. Dustin Person contributed these photos of Sutton with the following comments:
Sutton is located west of Cooperstown in Griggs County. Population around 20-25. There were a lot of abandoned houses in Sutton, and a number of kept up houses. The school has been converted into a Senior Citizen’s Center. The gas station looks to be closed, as there was tall grass and weeds growing up to the front door, however, I did not take any pictures of it as there were a couple vehicles parked there. The elevator is still in use, and is quite large for a small town, and there was also a bar on Main St. I was really surprised by the photo opportunities in Sutton.
The church pictured was a methodist church, looks like it was recently abandoned.
The post office (gray building) on Main St. was abandoned, so I don’t know if they have a post office anymore, but according to Wikipedia, they do, so not sure where that is.
