Alton history:

The Alton area was first settled in 1865 by Lorenzo W. Roundy. He called it Roundys Station. He had to abandon his little settlement when he began having trouble with the local Indians. Then it was known as Graham for Graham Duncan MacDonald who a bookkeeper for a nearby sawmill. The town itself was founded in 1907 when residents, including Jonathan Heaton, of Upper Kanab decided to begin a community here. The little town was surveyed and laid out in blocks with a center block set aside for the town square. The name was chosen by lot in 1912! People suggested names and those names were all put in a hat. One was drawn out and the town of Alton was named. The name is said to be from the Alton Fjord in Norway.
