History:  

ALTURA, a city in sections 17-20 of Norton Township, was incorporated as a village on August 17, 1906. It was first settled in the 1850s and named for a town in Valencia, Spain, by the Winona and Southwestern Railway when it came in 1889; it was platted in August 1901 by E. C. Burns, proprietor of the land. Early postal service was provided by Frederich Gensmer in 1864 and by Ely Turner, 1866-68, and the official post office began as Norton, 1886-91, with William Simon as postmaster; it was changed to Altura in 1891 and located in the general store of postmaster Herman Hilke.

Picturesque limestone bluffs and deep ravines make Whitewater a very popular southeastern state park. The 2,700 acre park is an angler's paradise with brown, brook, and rainbow trout swimming in the spring-fed Whitewater River and Trout Run Creek. Visitors enjoy a sandy swimming beach, a year-round visitor center, easy-to-challenging hiking trails, camping, a group camp, and a modern group center. Come in the winter to enjoy cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, and stay at the group center in rustic, winterized cabins. All through the year, discover the natural and human history of the area at one of the many interpretive programs, visitor center exhibits or self-guided trails.
