Broadway Historic District

History & Architecture: Broadway Historic District


This grand Victorian neighborhood is the premier historic area in Rock Island, where old houses are regarded as treasures. Great architecture, constant restorations, and a first rate neighborhood association have made this area the place to be in the Quad Cities for old house lovers. More than 550 homes make up the Broadway National Register Historic District collection, which has copious examples of Queen Anne, Italianate and Colonial Revival architecture. Fifty of the most outstanding examples have been selected for this brochure.
