History

According to the Rock Island County Historical Society, the first established inhabitants of Moline are thought to be the Sac Fox Indians. This tribe saw the land between the Rock and Mississippi Rivers as ideal for farming and fishing. Their village was called Saukunuk, and its position on the bluffs overlooking the river would prove to be a valuable lookout point. By the early 1800s, this once peaceful area would become one of war, caused by disputes between white settlers and the Sac Fox Tribe. In 1832 Chief Black Hawk declared war on the United States, initiating the Black Hawk War. When the war ended later that year, Black Hawk and his people were forced to leave the area and go north, paving the way for more settlers to enter the Mississippi Valley. The Sac and Fox Nation is the modern political entity encompassing the historical Sac and Fox nations of Native Americans. ... Black Hawk Black Hawk (Makataimeshekiakiak) (1767–October 3, 1838) was a chief of the Sac Native American tribe in what is now the United States. ...


Moline's first dam, built in 1841 by David B. Sears, was made of wood and connected Sylvan Slough and Arsenal Island. Water power generated by this dam attracted many mills and entrepreneurs, including John Deere, who moved his steel plow company to Moline in 1848. This same year, Moline was officially incorporated as a city. The city's name, suggested by a city surveyor, P.H. Olgilvie, is French for city of mills. This article is about structures for water impoundment. ... John Deere This article is about John Deere, the person. ... For the constellation known as The Plough see Ursa Major. ... A Municipal Corporation is a legal defintion for a local governing body, including (but not necessarily limited to) cities, counties, and towns. ...


Along with Deere and Co., many other Moline-based companies would soon be known around the country for their products. These include Dimock, Gould, and Co., Moline Pipe Organ Co., and Moline Furniture Works, just to name a few. In addition, there were several pioneering automobile companies, among them Moline Automobile Company,[1] Moline Wagon Company, and Velie Motors Corporation. Car redirects here. ... The 1915 Velie as advertised in the Literary Digest The Velie was an automobile brand produced by the Velie Motors Corporation of Moline, Illinois (United States) from 1908 to 1929. ...


Along with these factories came immigrants from France, Germany, Sweden, and Belgium. The rich culture of Moline is still evident today with events such as the Greek Fest, held every summer at the John Deere Commons, rolle bolle tournaments at Stephen's Park, and "Viva! Quad~Cities".

The highland is cut across by many deep ravines that break the city up into many natural neighborhoods. The Moline Park & Recreation Department has over 20 parks, recreational facilities, and cemeteries. In addition, the Moline Activity Center offers programs and activities for retired and semi-retired adults.

Downtown Moline Centre is the historic area bounded approximately by 12th and 34th Streets and the Mississippi River and 6th Avenue. Bass Street Landing brought an outdoor entertainment venue to the area. Other business in the area include Temple's Sporting Good and Lagomarcino's, a nearly century-old ice cream parlor and confectionery which has been open since 1908. Each year thousands of people come to see the John Deere Pavilion, and the i wireless Center for shows and concerts. The i wireless Center is a 12,000-seat multi-purpose arena in Moline, Illinois. ...


Floreciente: This neighborhood, extending from the end of Downtown at around 12th Street west to 1st Street and Rock Island, is the primary entry point for the city's increasing Latino population.[citation needed] The area was traditionally one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, with many of the houses being well into their second century of life.


Olde Towne: Olde Towne is bounded on the west along 15 Street Place and 16 Street, from the bluff of the Mississippi River to the hill that leans toward the Rock River. Olde Towne was the traditional home of Moline's large Belgian population. According to the Belgian Culture Center, Moline once had the largest Belgian population in our nation and now has the second largest. The area is filled with a variety of rental and owner occupied homes and is also home to a vibrant retail center.


Uptown: East of Olde Towne is a very similar neighborhood, though not traditionally as Belgian but rather German and Irish, called Uptown. This thoroughfare contains many successful businesses such as; Holst-Kakert Upholstery, K'nees Florist, and Wallace Music Co. The homes in the neighborhood are also quite eclectic.


Overlook: This neighborhood is bounded on the north by 7th Avenue and on the south by 12th Avenue from 10th Street to 16th Street. Named after the home of Charles Deere, Overlook sits on the bluff above Moline Centre. This neighborhood boasts a wide range of historically significant homes that have been maintained or restored to their original detail by their owners. Two famous homes are the Butterworth Mansion and Deere-Wiman House. These two homes and their gorgeous grounds are open to the public year-round. The neighborhood is also home to One Moline Place, a new development featuring luxury single-family homes, townhomes, and condominiums. The area includes two parks - Velie and Butterworth. Velie park features breathtaking views of the downtown area as far as Riverside Cemetery. The Overlook Historic Neighborhood Association has conducted numerous activities to promote its neighborhood, including “Art in the Park,” an annual June art festival held in Velie Park featuring works from local artists, as well as a walking tour of some of Overlook’s beautiful historic homes.


Karsten's Park: This neighborhood is centered around the city park with the same name between 5th and 6th Streets and 22nd and 23rd Avenues. 7th Street is the main thoroughfare of this neighborhood. A neighborhood of many ethnicities, its homes become more upscale and less working class, but this area is still predominantly middle class. Around 2nd Street are located newer homes (1960s and 1970s era), but generally the houses date from the 1920s-1940s.


Wharton: Wharton is centered at the busy intersection of 16th Street and Avenue of the Cities. The Wharton Field House gives the neighborhood it name, and the field house (built in 1928 and named for P.T. Wharton, the then president of the Moline School Board) and the adjacent Browning Field (named after John T. Browning) host many events, such as Moline Maroons basketball, football, and soccer games as well as track events. Wharton Field House used to host the Quad City Thunder CBA Basketball before the Mark of the Quad Cities (now the i wireless Center) opened. The neighborhood contains many large two and three story brick Georgian homes. Wharon has many local businesses such as Hungry Hobo, Whitey's Ice Cream, Rudy's Tacos, Teskes, and Happy Joes, the neighborhood pizza parlor. Wharton Field House is an indoor arena in Moline, Illinois. ... The i wireless Center is a 12,000-seat multi-purpose arena in Moline, Illinois. ... Whiteys is an Ice Cream store in the Quad Cities. ...


Hamilton Heights: The neighborhood south of Karsten's Park is unofficially known as Hamilton Heights after the local elementary school in the area. Houses here mostly were built in the 1940s and 1950s and many more are made out of brick, especially along 7th Street. This is a completely residential neighborhood with little business aside from Katy's Market which is the most obvious token of the city's German heritage selling German sausages and other German groceries.


Wildwood: Right before 7th Street goes down the hill into the Rock River Valley, it comes across the neighborhood of Wildwood with its winding named streets and large newer homes. The old Velie Mansion, now Quad City Bank and Trust, built when it was nothing but merely forest, is on the fringe of the neighborhood.


Prospect Park: This is a neighborhood designated by the city along 16th Street south of the Wharton neighborhood. Much like the other 16th Street neighborhoods, the side west of 16th is significantly more upscale than those east of 16th; however, the far west and east fringes both contain newer large houses built in the 1970s-1990s. 16th Street stays a very important thoroughfare, housing Trevor's, WQAD, and the actual park itself, one of the largest in the city. Behind the park are many older large homes. The neighborhood is also home to Quad City Music Guild, which offers wonderful musicals year-round. It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with WQAD-TV. (Discuss) WQAD-TV/DT, NewsChannel 8, is the ABC television affiliate in the Davenport-Moline-Rock Island market (market size 95) serving eastern Iowa and western Illinois. ...


Park Hill: Park Hill is bounded by 4th Avenue in the north to 12th Avenue in the south from 19th to 27th Street. This neighborhood boasts a terrific view of the mighty Mississippi River from its bluffs. Park Hill is one of Moline's oldest neighborhoods, with many of its homes built for the workers of John Deere. Several neighborhood homes were built between the 1900's - 1930's, and were owned by prominent business leaders. Riverside Park, which gives the neighborhood its name, contains several baseball fields, a pond, two cemeteries, and the Riverside Aquatic Center, a pool with water slides and fountains. For the river in Canada, see Mississippi River (Ontario). ... Deere & Company (usually known by its brand name John Deere) (NYSE: DE) is an American corporation based in Moline, Illinois, and the leading manufacturer of agricultural machinery in the world. ...


Forest Hill: This neighborhood, centered along 27th Street between 12th and 23rd Avenues, is one of the many solely residential neighborhoods which predominate the east side of town. Because that side is newer, 23rd Avenue emerged as the only commercial drag as people could drive by the time it was developed. However, Forest Hill, much like Wharton, contains very nice older homes, unusual for the east side of town. In Forest Hill, these homes tend to be much larger, though, making it one of the most desirable areas in the city to live.


Highland: Is along Avenue of the Cities, and was mostly built during the Great Depression. The business corridor of Avenue of the Cities keeps people in the area. Highland is the home of Hafner's Bar, which is a classier bar with a loyal following, El Pavito, among many other smaller stores that gives Highland a "main street" look.


Villa Park / Green Acres: Together, these two miniature neighborhoods, which were built during the 1940s, - the 1960s, compromise another solely residential neighborhood on the east side. This neighborhood was one that was dramatically altered during the 1960s when several blocks as well as the old Oakwood Country Club were ripped out to construct I-74. Interstate 74 is an interstate highway in the midwestern United States. ...


Molette: After World War II the influx of veterans from the war made it necessary for huge swaths of land to be turned into small prefabricated homes. Molette was one of these neighborhoods. The area consists of winding streets that run between 34th and 41st Streets and 12th and 23rd Avenues, each with small two bedroom ranches, many of which have had porches and extra rooms add on to them.


Rockview Estates: This neighborhood is west of 41st Street and between John Deere Road and Moline Senior High School. Most of the houses in this neighborhood are actually duplexes and more people rent than in most neighborhoods. There are no commercial institutions in the area and the new Moline Public Library is on 41st Street. The neighborhood sets on the ridges above the Rock River Valley and some apartment buildings take advantage of this location, although recent development along the John Deere Corridor, including Walmart and Lowe's has left the natural beauty of the Rock River wetlands largely destroyed.


Homewood: Much like Wildwood, this neighborhood spirals and twists around itself along the hill spreading into the Rock River Valley. It is bisected by 53rd Street but extends from 41st to 60th Streets south of 34th Avenue. The houses were mostly built in the 1970s and 1980s and are of various styles. Similar to Rockview Estates, this neighborhood overlooks the Rock River valley and the Heritage neighborhood.


Heritage: This neighborhood lies beyond the largely commercial sections of John Deere Road and lies south of the intersection of that road and 53rd Street. The neighborhood was better developed than others along the river keeping the neighborhood dry when others flood.
