The purpose for which this corporation is organized is to promote, create, and regulate an operational museum for the "Greater Alton Area" in order to preserve the area's history and art. The museum is dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting artifacts from 1673 to the present for educational and entertainment purposes.
Since the summer of 1971 we have dedicated ourselves to inspiring community members and beyond to appreciate Alton's important heritage. AMHA's legacy includes preserving architectural structures, illuminating influential personalities (Lovejoy, Wadlow, Lincoln, M. Davis, K. Dunham, local artists and architects, and community/organizational educators.
We host monthly presentations, provide an annual Jazz festival dedicated to the great master Miles Davis, AMHA supports responsible environmental projects (Sierra Club, Veteran therapy garden,etc.), members of ToastMasters International, and help provide injured workers alternative income options via the company ReEmployability.
