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!

German Heritage Day
The first German Heritage Day was held on June 1st at the City Municipal Building. Originally planned for Klitzing Park, rain caused plans to be changed! The local Churches set up displays chronicling their personal histories, plus displaying some German items of interest. There were stories and games for the children, a bake sale with some German pastries, plus bratwurst and hot dogs for the hungry folks! Hopefully, this will be a celebration that grows from year to year!
