Looking for the real story of why Alton, Illinois, is know as one of the most haunted small towns in America? Come along on one of the award-winning Alton Hauntings Tours! Based on the book by author Troy Taylor, it has been called the "most authentic" tour in the region and after almost 20 years, we take you behind the scenes of the most haunted places in town. According to legend, author Mark Twain once called Alton a "dismal little river town," largely thanks to the dark history that the city had already endured prior to its heyday as a thriving river port. From those days, through the early 1900s, Alton saw more than its share of death, disease, disaster, violence, murder, and even the scars of the Civil War. Today, come see how the events of the past have created the hauntings of what is now being called "one of the most haunted small towns in America." Our tour is an entertaining, often spine-tingling trip back in town to discover the true story of why our little town has become so haunted over the years!
