Located on the northwest side of the Davenport region in Iowa, the John Littig House is a significant structure and occupies great monumental value over the decades. Spanning about 0.9 acres (0.36 hectares), the house was established in 1867. The stone farmhouse was built by John Littig and was later bought by the city of Davenport. It functions as an exquisite meeting place for accomplished and prominent organizations.
As one of the first museums west of the Mississippi River, the Putnam Museum was founded in 1867 in Davenport. Today the museum is home to over 160,000 specimens and artifacts that cover natural science and history. Realistic dioramas, fascinating exhibits and an IMAX theater make for an exciting and educational experience.
The Antoine LeClaire House was originally built in 1855 by one of the founders of Davenport. Now a community center, it is the hub of civic activity and point of tourist information. It hosts meetings and programs, and also offers information on local history, culture and attractions.
The Horseshack in downtown Rock Island is quite an unconventional platform for upcoming local and national independent bands. Adopted by the website Daytrotter.com as their recording studio in 2006, this state-of-the-art studio has hosted the recordings of more than 2000 sessions by various indie bands. During the sessions, each band records four songs which are then available for downloads and live streaming on the website on payment of a small fee. The list of artists/ bands who have recorded their songs here is endless and growing as the days go by. And if you want to witness these sessions in progress, then you can walk down to the studio and watch the bands record their songs. A unique concept, indeed! Visit the Daytrotter's website for more information.
