It also seemed to indicate the town was only an extension or suburb of Orange City. Early in 1881 itwasdesired to incorporate the village and chafnge its name to something simpler than East Orange.

Alton was settled by a group with a German and Luxenburg background who came from Dubuque and Jackson County, Iowa with many later coming from Germany and Luxembourg.
