Alton State Hospital Cemetery

Madison County ILGenWeb Coordinator - Beverly Bauser

 

The Alton State Hospital established a cemetery in 1918. By July 31, 1918, twenty people had been buried there. The original cemetery is located on the west side of Fosterburg Road in Alton (about a mile from Rt. 140), just north of the Hilltop Auction Barn, on what was part of the old Kirkpatrick farm. The flat stones that once marked the gravesites are now covered with grass and dirt - maybe 20 markers are still partially visible. The hospital has another cemetery on the hospital grounds, on the east side of Fosterburg Road. I have never been to that cemetery, and I don't know if the graves are marked and what condition they are in. Below is a partial listing of the burials.
