At the intersection of Lincoln Lake Road and 3 Mile Ave, just 5 miles north of Lowell, lies the village of Alton. The bare crossroads today give but one clue to the thriving village that once existed. Here, where the first log school house in Vergennes township once stood, stands the historic Alton church building, surrounded by cemetery. The Alton church, owned by the community, housed numerous church congregations through the years, and is now home to displays highlighting the village in its peak during the 1880's and 90's. Families fleeing the Canadian rebellion of 1838 settled the Alton village. The village grew steadily over time, until the 1890's, when the village saw a great immigration of Swiss settlers.
