Join American Hauntings as we return to Haunted Alton, Illinois!
According to legend, author Mark Twain once called Alton a "dismal little river town," largely thanks to the dark history that the city had already endured prior to its heyday as a thriving river port. Over the last two centuries, Alton has seen more than its share of death, disaster, violence, murder, and even the mayhem of the Civil War. Those events have left a permanent impression on this little town, earning it a reputation as "one of the most haunted small towns in America." In 2018, the Haunted America Conference returns once more to Alton -- the perfect setting for our 22nd annual paranormal event. For generations, Alton has had a history of ghostly sightings, eerie events, and unexplained encounters -- often during our annual conference. Join us this year, when you can experience the many hauntings of Alton, Illinois, for yourself!

Discover America's Longest-Running Conference in 2018!
Join us in Alton, explore this historic and haunted region, and take part in our weekend events, but remember, this may not be like other ghost conferences that you've attended -- mostly because this is the conference that started it all! Founded in 1997, we set the stage for every event that has followed. This is not some sort of "meet and greet" with "celebrities" who sit at tables so you can pay for autographs -- this is a speaker-based event with presentations, discussions, question and answer sessions, hands-on workshops, ghost hunts, tours, and much more! The Haunted America Conference is always the most fun you'll have at a paranormal event, but we want to make sure that our guests always take away something from the weekend with research on ghosts and hauntings they won't hear anywhere else, the opportunity to meet ghost enthusiasts from across the country, and a chance to be part of a real community of open-minded individuals with an interest in the unexplained. Whether attending for the first time or returning for another great year, we'll look forward to seeing you in Illinois in June 2018! You won't be sorry you've come!
