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. Now, from author Troy Taylor, we bring you the stories of the past that have created the hauntings of what is now being called "one of the most haunted small towns in America."
