The first census shows that there have been people living in Alton since at least the 1870’s, with the area experiencing the most dramatic population boom during the 1920’s with the growth in the milling industry. 

While Alton is a small community, there’s still plenty to do. The local Greer Spring provides an exciting area for nature-lovers to explore. There’s also a canoe rental where people can hire canoes and take a tour of the local surroundings via the numerous rivers and streams which criss-cross the areas.
