Altus isn’t much, it is where modern day Parley’s Summit is and it is listed on some of my older maps and some lists online call it a ghost town but to me that implies some sort of abandoned buildings or something. All it is now is a “used to be” at the current location of the Jeremy Ranch Exit on I-80 near Park City.

I’ll post more if I can find more.

Altus was settled in 1900 as a temporary way station, but was soon abandoned. It completely disappeared after the I-80 freeway was built.(*)
