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!
Saturday, June 1 will see Altamont's first German Heritage Day! The day will kick off at 10 am at Klitzing Park. Activities include a display of photos and information about the first German settlers, "old fashioned" games for the kids, brats and German pastries, and of course, German music. Wright's Mansion will be open for tours from noon until 2 and Ballard Nature Center will be open from 1 to 4.
