The community of Mont Alto owes its existence to the Mont Alto Iron Works, according to local historian Charlie Kauffman.

Still, the growth of the coal-blasted iron company outpaced the level of goods and services being offered, Kauffman said. Families began to settle nearby on other land, he said.
