HISTORY: Dutton started out as a fishing community and it is still serviced mostly by fishermen and tourism. Downtown prospered for awhile as fishing went well, but time has shown the town economy and population changes with the fishing industry in town. The town was hit hard when the timber industry was limited by what it could cut down, and teh economy suffered during storms, and down fishing months. The biggest problem for the town is weathering on buildings, and depression, because it it can be cloudy and foggy nearly 300 days out of the year.
