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!
I've never posted an obit on here, but Carl Brauer was our mayor for 20 years (1979-1999) and I know my readers who grew up here will like to know. I know he will be missed by more than just his family.
