The Village of Alton is on the northwest side of Caledon. It is less than 10 minutes to Orangeville.
Alton was incorporated in the early 1850's and, according to a brief history by William R. Meek, at one time, it had 8 power dams that powered the many mills in the area. This prosperous timeframe would explain the abundance of century homes in Alton today. Some have been gutted and rebuilt while others are still waiting for an industrious person with vision to bring them back to their former charm.

Alton's big secret, however, is Ray's 3rd Generation Bistro Bakery. Don't let the name fool you, Ray's is way more than a bakery. Chef Jason offers exceptional gourmet meals at prices that will make you a "regular". Local musical talent, a casually elegant ambiance & the option to sit outside in the private, grassy courtyard make dining at Ray's a completely enjoyable experience.
The excitement in Alton right now is for Osprey Valley Golf Course, which is on the south side of Alton, has become TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley.
