The Sutton County Historical Society loves teaching children about their local history. By teaching our children about our history we pass on stories and build a love for our community. Small towns rely on the love of our community and history so bring the kids by and let us teach our future generations through an exciting scavenger hunt and win a prize from our gift shop Treasure Box. Kids 12 & Under are always free!
