History and the Arts

Alton remains a vibrant community by recreating its connections to past history. The Alton Museum of History and Art showcases much of the local history, which is rich in both political and artistic depth. Other themes, such as the story of Robert Wadlow, a former Alton local who is allegedly the "World's Tallest Man," and the historical clothing exhibit are also featured at the museum. Alton also dedicates itself to showcasing visual and performance art. The Jacoby Arts Center, Little Theater, Children's Theater, and the Ampitheater number among local venues to take in some modern paintings or watch a show.

Education in Alton's

Alton offers many choices for both K-12 and higher education. In addition to the public school system, there are parochial and private options at the K-12 level. It is also home to two institutions of affordable higher learning--Lewis and Clark Community College and Southern Illinois University. The Early Childhood and Motivational Achievement Centers provide supplementary enrichment so that children may excel in their academics. Most public schools in the nation are increasingly focused on math, technology, and science education; combined with its focus on history and the arts, Alton provides a unique opportunity to help children achieve an exceptionally well-rounded education.

Parks for You and You

Alton's Parks and Recreation Department manages a total of 16 parks. Take a relaxed stroll through the Eunice Smith Arboretum, Gordon F. More Park, or the Rock Spring Park, which all have beautiful stretches of green lawn and trees. If you feel like spending an afternoon simply enjoying the view, have a seat in Dormann Square's sunken garden. A more historical site for laid-back perusal is Lincoln Douglas Square, where you can learn about Lincoln and Douglas's 1858 Illinois State Senate debate. There are also a number of dog parks throughout the city to let your loyal companion play and meet fellow mutts.
