    Sutton is a location in Fallout 76.


    A small town in Braxton Country, West Virginia, Sutton was first settled in 1792, however, it did not formally come into being until 1835, when Suttonville was laid out, taking after John Sutton's settlement 26 years prior at the confluence of Granny's Creek and the Elk River. From its earliest years, Sutton was a transportation hub, connecting trade and transportation routes in Virginia, with infrastructure steadily expanding until the American Civil War brought a Union garrison. The town's downtown burned to the ground after Confederate soldiers put it to the torch on December 29, 1861. Although it slowly rebuilt, it did not experience a major rebuilt until the local timber industry expanded. It remained a small-time town after the boom petered out, lasting well into the 21st century. The lack of development and remote location allowed Sutton to weather the destruction remarkably well.[1]

    In the years that followed, Sutton was claimed as a stronghold by the Pleasant Valley raiders, who fortified the downtown, establishing a major stronghold using existing buildings and makeshift fortifications as basis. By 2102, however, the city is a ghost town, with the raiders wiped out by the horrors of Appalachia.

    Points of interest

    • Sutton is a small town laid out along the state route heading north and south. At the southern end, outside the town limits, sits the Sutton Station with a raider vendor bot.
    • The southern end of the town contains a mechanic's shed with a dismantled plane and a neogothic church. Step through the door to find a congregation that committed suicide by drinking rat poison under the guidance of a murderous con-man. Check the back for Leader's Journal and pastor's vestments.
    • The downtown is blocked off by a raider wall that encloses several of the storefronts. Inside the downtown, accessible through the adjacent buildings, are numerous loot spawn points, a weapons and an armor crafting station, a steamer trunk, and a bobblehead and a magazine spawn point in the liquor and clothes store respectively.
    • To the northwest lies the Red Rocket gas station with the player's stash.
    • To the northeast is a blue two story house, which belonged to the Vault 76 overseer's parents. It's packed with loot, a magazine and a bobblehead spawn point, as well as a locked safe and a tinker's bench. The metal trailer to the north contains a metal trailer with a chemistry station and another locked safe.
