A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Alton ...
Although we found mention of Alton during our research, we really don't have any information about it.<1> Given the context of how Alton was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
We've added Alton to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Alton - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Alton, please Contact Us.
When the people of Alton refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use Altonian<2>
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Alton might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time. The time zone in French: EST- Heure Normale de l'Est (HNE), EDT- Heure Avancée de l'Est (HAE).
We believe that Alton would be found within the (705) and (249)<3> area codes.
