This beautifully restored 120 year old general store offers many local and handmade crafts, tools, and candy as well as a delightful bed and breakfast. And since Braxton County is no stranger to unusual life forms (back in the 1950s, there were several sightings of the eerie Flatwoods Monster in the area; the monster appears to have been inactive since 1952), there is also a local free museum dedicated to him in Sutton.
