Before World War II, the area was known as the "Tri-Cities", and included only Davenport, Rock Island, and Moline. With the growth of Rock Island County, East Moline was eventually given "equal status" and the region became known as the "Quad Cities" during the early 1960s. By the 1970s, Bettendorf had grown such that many people in the community openly discussed the adoption of the name "Quint Cities". However, by this time, the name "Quad Cities" had become known well beyond the area, and Quint Cities never caught on. As Bettendorf passed East Moline in size and prosperity, East Moline was quietly dropped from strictly maintained lists, though East Moliners still regard their town as one of the "Quads".

History

Early history

The Black Hawk State Historic Site in Rock Island preserves part of historic Saukenuk, the principal village of the Sauk tribe and birthplace of its war leader, Black Hawk.

The first railroad bridge built across the Mississippi River connected Davenport and Rock Island in 1856. It was built by the Rock Island Railroad Company. It landed in the same location in Davenport where the Black Hawk War treaty had been signed a few decades earlier. Steamboaters saw nationwide railroads as a threat to their business. On May 6, 1856, just weeks after it was completed, an angry steamboater crashed the Effie Afton steamboat into the bridge. The owner of the Effie Afton, John Hurd, filed a lawsuit against The Rock Island Railroad Company. The Rock Island Railroad Company selected Abraham Lincoln as their trial lawyer. It was a pivotal trial in Lincoln's career. For the river in Canada, see Mississippi River (Ontario). ...

As indicated above, in the 1950s the name Quad Cities began to emerge in community and business titles, replacing "Tri Cities". With more growth, the name Quint Cities was sporadically promoted during the 1970s and early 1980s, but never caught on, even though several business groups promoted it. For example, KSTT, a very popular local AM radio station, used 'Quint Cities" in several of its station ID jingles and advertising. There are still a few local businesses that bear the name Quint Cities and others even maintain the original Tri-Cities designation. Yet it is the Quad Cities that the area is most widely known as.

1980s-current

In the early 1980s, a nationwide farm crisis had a direct impact on the Quad Cities. Several agricultural manufacturers - which employed tens of thousands of blue-collar workers - announced plans to close their factories in the Quad Cities, including International Harvester in Rock Island and Case IH in Bettendorf. Moline-based John Deere, which to this day remains the region's top employer, cut its production by nearly 50 percent.

The grant would pay for Davenport's River Renaissance, a downtown revitalization project that includes a River Music History Center, an ag-tech venture capital campus and the Figge Art Museum.
