Did you know? Bettendorf was named after 2 brothers when they brought their manufacturing business to the town in 1902. One of the brothers, Joseph Bettendorf, built a breathtaking Mansion overlooking the Mississippi, which still stands today and is open to the entire Quad City community while beautifully decorated for the holidays!

Help us spread the word to Quad City residents about this fantastic opportunity to tour a local historic landmark!
