Welcome to The Official Website of The Historic
Located in Historical town of Alton, Illinois
Just North of St. Louis, Missouri.
Atop Mount Lookout Park, the highest point in Alton, stands the McPike House. It has not been occupied since the 1950's. Since that time, weather and vandals have caused extensive damage to this historic home.
Currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places
Once a proud addition to the town, the mansion continues to be in need of much repair.
Currently owned by Sharyn and George Luedke, many needed repairs are being done to return it to it's former glory. The current owners have been successful at stabilizing much of the structure and continue to make needed renovations. Thanks to everyone who continue to support events at McPike and extend donations towards these efforts.
