We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Alta Vista was located in Hamilton County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Alta Vista to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information.
