George Honey Biography
During the first several weeks of 1894 publisher F. M. Brown ran several biographies of Sutton citizens in his Sutton Register newspaper.
George Honey built a large, two-story building on the southeast corner of Saunders Avenue and Hickory Street where he operated his furniture store/hardware store and mortuary. That building became the Sutton Schools Auditorium for many years. After the schools moved to the north end of town, it was a blacksmith shop and later was destroyed in a fire.
The Sutton Community Center is now located on that site.
