Event Details

The Colonel Davenport Historical Foundation opens the historic Quarters One mansion to the public for guided tours on Sunday, July 29, 2018.

Tours of Quarters One on July 28 will begin promptly at 12 p.m. and continue starting every half hour until the last tour at 4 p.m. The tour costs $10 per person. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Active military can attend for free, but must still register. Tour size will be limited. Tickets must be purchased in advance.

Completed in 1872, Quarters One served as the home to the highest ranking officer at the Rock Island Arsenal, as well as providing space for official gatherings and functions. Over the years, this mansion of Italianate design hosted many dignitaries and notable personalities. Thirty-eight different senior officers have called Quarters One home until 2008. It was the second-largest federal residence in the U.S., behind the White House.

The Quarters One tour is not handicapped accessible. 

The Rock Island Arsenal is an active military installation.  This tour has been declared a Special Event so guests may enter Arsenal Island with their U.S. picture ID at the Moline gate. Simply tell the guard you are going to Quarters One for the tour.

This event is a fundraiser for the Colonel Davenport Historical Foundation.

Colonel Davenport Historical Foundation

The Colonel Davenport Historical Foundation (CDHF) is a nonprofit volunteer group that works to preserve Colonel George Davenport’s former home and share his story with the community. The Colonel Davenport House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was built in 1833-1834 and is on the North end of Arsenal Island in the Quad Cities. Colonel Davenport was the first permanent white settler in the Quad Cities and built the first house in the area. The Foundation relies on volunteers to maintain and operate the house. It is open for tours from May to October, Wednesday to Saturday from 12-4 p.m.
