Sutton Vermont is a town in Caledonia County, located in the beautifully scenic "Northeast Kingdom" of Vermont, an area that National Geographic selected as part of their geotourism program for sustainable destinations. Stannard has no paved roads.
Previously known as Goshen Gore No. 1, the town was incorporated as Stannard in honor of General George J. Stannard, a Union Army hero of the Civil War. Stannard and his 2nd Vermont Brigade broke Pickett's charge and beat back troops from Florida and Alabama at the Battle of Gettysburg. He was commended by the Vermont legislature in 1865 for his "skill and bravery."
Some notable people from Sutton include: actor Luis Guzman, and Henry Oscar Houghton, cofounder of Houghton Mifflin.
