Welcome To Alton, TX.


Alton, Texas was founded by citizens and railroad officials of Alton Illinois and the Alton Illinois Railroad around 1910-1911. During that time the small township was a stop on the San Benito and Rio Grande Valley Railway also called The Spider Web Railroad. During that time it was well known for its “Caliche” (sedimentary rock) quarries that were excavated and shipped up north for a variety of construction projects.
