Lovejoy Monument at City CemeteryAlton Little Theater is bringing back Vintage Voices to the Alton City Cemetery for the 12th consecutive year.  Each Saturday in October, a group of actors will portray famous, and sometimes imfamous Altonians, who are buried in the cemetery and share their story and impact on the city.  Ten former residents, including three children, will be portrayed this year.

Tour Coordinator Lee Cox says while Alton might have a haunted reputation, this is a tour focused on history:
