This building, located north of the triangle, was one of the oldest in Altamont. It was built in 1873 by George Hilleman and later became a furniture factory, grocery store, and a general store. The upper floor was the home of “The Altamont Courier,” Altamont’s first newspaper, which was founded in 1873.

The building was demolished in 1959. A modern building was constructed on the site, and the Altamont Independent Newspaper occupied the building for many years.

What are your memories of this building?
