Altamont is a unique small town that has a little bit of everything. Great antique shops, boutiques, salons, hotels, family owned restaurants, beautiful churches, nature centers, and great schools! If you’re looking for a peaceful yet beautiful place surrounded by corn fields and woods, this town is for you!
I like that Altamont is a small town and feels safe. I grew up in Altamont and never worried about going into an unsafe area, attended a small school k-12 was nice but I would like there to be a change for students to have a place to go to hang out after school that is a cheap place. Somewhere students can relax and study together away from houses and the school.
I like that it is small and easy to get around town. I would like to see a change in the number of kids going out and partying and drinking and smoking and vaping and whatever else.
