Welcome to Altamont, Illinois! We are your typical small Midwestern town. You can find us half-way between St. Louis and Terre Haute, just off Interstate 70. Hope this site will encourage you to stop and visit if you've never been here, and if you have, I hope I renew some good memories!

Despite the dry weather and intense heat we had in July the hanging baskets around town thrived with the vigilant watering done by the Garden Club and a load of volunteers. Notice how dead the grass is around the pole (with the little bit of green directly underneath the basket!). I noticed signs of heat stress close up, but the flowers still looked amazing.
