Sutherland is a census-designated place in Millard County, Utah, United States. The population was 165 at the 2010 census.


Sutherland is located in the north central part of Millard County, some 4 miles (6.4 km) northwest of the city of Delta[4] across the Sevier River. Hinckley lies about 6 miles (9.7 km) to the southwest, and Gunnison Bend Reservoir is 5 miles (8.0 km) south. Sutherland is one of a number of small farming communities in the area, including Woodrow and Sugarville just to the north. About 9 miles (14 km) to the west is the site of the historic Topaz War Relocation Center.


In 1909, a tract of thousands of acres of land northwest of the new city of Delta became available for agricultural settlement, under the terms of the Carey Act. Settlers began to cluster around the property of Myron Abbott, regarded as founder of the community,[5]:211 which was known early on as North Tract or West Delta. By 1912, there were 80 families with 121 children of school age in the area. Tired of waiting for county officials, private citizens built a public schoolhouse in 1913. Then residents petitioned for the creation of a voting precinct and school district. The name Sutherland was chosen in honor of Utah political figure George Sutherland, who was serving as a United States Senator at the time.[5]:228 The Sutherland elementary school remained open until the 1970s.[5]:389–390
