HAUNTED ALTON

THE HISTORY AND MYSTERY OF ONE OF THE MOST HAUNTED SMALL TOWNS IN AMERICA

BY TROY TAYLOR


For more than two centuries, the Mississippi River town of Alton, Illinois, has gained a reputation for its dark side. Author Mark Twain called it "a dismal little river town," and today, it's known as "one of the most haunted small towns in America" - all thanks to its long and bloody history of death, violence, disease, disaster, and, of course, its ghosts.


Author Troy Taylor returns to the streets of Alton for a new, updated, and revised look at the town's weird history with more history and more hauntings than ever before. Filled with chilling tales, you'll find many within these pages that have never appeared in print before, plus new stories and details from places like the Mineral Springs Hotel, Enos Sanitorium, Powder Mills Road, Alton Penitentiary, McPike Mansion, Illinois Glass Works, First Unitarian Church, Lewis and Clark College, and more


This is the original book of Alton's ghost stories in a new, revised edition and serves as the inspiration for the award-winning Alton Hauntings Tours. Discover the true story of how Alton became so haunted and how it's earned its moniker of one of the country's most spirited small towns
