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!

Memorial Day in Altamont
Altamont hosted its annual Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 26. It's a nice little parade that starts at the High School and ends at Union Cemetary, where there is a ceremony to mark the day.
Along with the obligatory firetrucks and ambulances, tractors and horses, there was also the color guard, church groups and Shriners.
