PLUS Ever wonder what goes on behind the locked doors of the public halls? Here's your chance to see the residential areas, the workshops, and the yet-to-be-touched areas of our building.

Co-Owner Meredith Elliott will be giving three full building tours of the iconic 85,000 sq ft schoolhouse that walk you through the caverns of the basement, the sprawling warehouse, the private residences, and the forgotten gymnasium.

See what we're up to - and get a sneak peek into our plans for the future!

This tour is perfect for like-minded dreamers, champions of Alton's revitalization, curious neighbors, or those looking to reminisce on their days as a student. 

Tours are donation based but spots must be reserved in advance. Limited 20 people per tour. Please wear closed-toed shoes as this tour will be walking through construction areas, workshops, and deteriorating spaces. Bring your camera! 

When reserving a space, please indicate at checkout how many spaces you are reserving for that tour time. If you forget, we'll shoot you a message to the email attached to your paypal to follow up. Be on the lookout for an email confirmation and further instructions the week before the tour. If you have any questions, email Meredith at
