Town of Altona

Altona is a quaint rural community steeped in history, nestled in the heart of the North Country. We are approximately 24 miles west of Plattsburgh and 1 hour away from Montreal.


We are a community of 2950 persons and cover 104 miles.
Farming, the NAC school district, Rainbow Banquet Hall and a correctional facility are the main local employers.
Several family owned gas and food markets may be found in and in the outskirts of town.
Holy Angels Catholic Church is located in the center of the township.

As Supervisor, I welcome you to our family friendly community — great people and a great place to live.
