Historic Moline Centre Architectural Walking Tour

Founded in 1848, Moline developed along the banks of the Mississippi River.  Within a few years, an assortment of mills and factories were built.  To fulfill their needs a central business and commercial district was established.  This resulted in a unique collection of period architecture which encompasses over 150 years.  As in many older cities, Moline is seeing a resurgence in restoring old buildings into modern day loft living opportunities. 

Recently the Moline Historic Preservation Commission has worked with the Moline center to develop a web-based information system available on a smart phone or computer using the web and QR codes.  The information is available in Kiosks throughout downtown and on the web at www.molinecentre.org/about/history.
