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!
Altamont was blessed with beautiful weather for the Garden Club's Fall Festival held at Schmidt Park. Temperatures hovered in the low 70's, which was perfect for sampling Chili provided for the Cook-off! Pork burgers and hot dogs were also available. This year the Garden Club included kids' games for a few hours and entertainment for the entire afternoon. A Vendor area was included for people to stroll through and of course, there was mums, pumpkins and hay bails available for purchase.
