Alton is a city on the Mississippi River in Illinois in Madison County. Alton is about 15 miles north of St. Louis, Missouri. It is a part of the Greater St. Louis Metropolitan area, known as the Metro-East. Alton is rich in history as one of the oldest cities in the state of Illinois famous for its limestone bluffs along the river north of the city and as the hometown of jazz musician Miles Davis and the tallest known person in history, Robert Wadlow, among other things.
