I. N. Sutton and Sons, Robert and Harry Sutton, who operate the planing mill on lower Poplar street, are among the "live wires" of the city. Mr. Sutton, Sr., has been connected with the building trade in this city since 1871 and since they have been men his sons have worked at the trade their father has filled so ably. About five years ago the firm of Sutton, Hampel & Sutton was formed, the firm being made up of I. N. Sutton, Geo. Hampel and Harry Sutton. About six months ago Robert Sutton, who had long been in the employ of the firm, bought the interest of Mr. Hampel and the firm became I. N. Sutton & Sons. The business is in large part that of a planing mill. Screens, sash, window frames, door frames and the like are made and some contracting and building is done. The lumber used in the work is bought by the firm rough and dressed at their plant. Their work is honestly and thoroughly done and this policy, coupled with enterprise and untiring industry, have brought the concern from small beginnings to its present proportions. The industry of I. N. Sutton & Sons is a good one for the city and is doing its full share toward the upbuilding of the town and county.
