Celebrate the joy of the season! Join us for Rivermont Collegiate's Annual Holiday Open House, to be held Saturday, December 11th from 4:00-7:00 p.m. The Rivermont Collegiate campus is home to the Historic Joseph Bettendorf Mansion, built on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi. The Mansion is a local landmark, featuring Italian marble, painted ceilings, and hand carved woodwork. Joseph W. Bettendorf, head of the Bettendorf Company, built his English manor style home in 1915 for his family and to entertain railroad magnates from the east. The Mansion remained a residence of the Bettendorf family until it was sold to the Marist Society in 1959 and used as a seminary. In 1973, St. Katharine's-St. Mark's School purchased the Mansion and moved the school from Davenport. In 2002, the school was renamed Rivermont Collegiate, since it no longer had a religious affiliation. In 1984, the Bettendorf Mansion was recognized for its historical significance to the people of Iowa and was entered in the National Register of Historic Places.
The Annual Holiday Open House is a chance for the community to view the Bettendorf Mansion in all its splendor, beautifully decorated for the holidays. Rivermont Collegiate is located at 1821 Sunset Drive, directly off 18th Street behind K&K Hardware in Bettendorf. Drop in between 4:00 and 7:00 p.m. for light refreshments and tours of this local gem!
