Highland Park Historic District

Rock Island City, Rock Island County, IL

Rock Island's wealthiest citizens made their homes in Highland Park between 1895 and 1928, which was a rural area when the first houses were constructed. All of the architectural revivals, many of which were professionally designed, are present in their highest form in this exclusive neighborhood. These styles include Colonial, Georgian, Dutch, Tudor, and Spanish. The brick streets add a special ambiance to this locally designated historic district. [1]
