Suttontown is a small point in northern Sampson County in Eastern North Carolina, USA, that consists of a gas station and a volunteer EMS station. It is named after the Sutton family who started the small gas station and donated the land that the EMS station is on. The gas station serves as a community center for most of the farmers in the rural community. Local fire protection is provided by the nearby Piney Grove Volunteer Fire Department.

Recently, the local gas station was converted to a grill named Buckshot's Grill. They serve meals to the community and are a popular social destination for the area farmers.

The Marshall Kornegay House and Cemetery was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[2]
