Take a Step Back in Time


The Broadway Historic District is a 19th century neighborhood in the heart of Rock Island, Illinois. This revitalized residential area is known for its vintage homes, exciting preservation efforts, and front porch socializing.


The neighborhood is located near Rock Island’s thriving arts-and-entertainment district and Mississippi River. Residents and visitors enjoy close proximity to parks, bike paths, schools, and shopping.


The Broadway area has earned a reputation for its architecture and neighborhood events. It was awarded the status of National Historic District in 1998 and has been recognized in Midwest Living and This Old House magazines. Hundreds of people attend the neighborhood’s annual Tour of Homes, where beautifully restored Victorian era homes are open to visitors.


Come learn more about the history of Rock Island and the Broadway District, and what makes this such a great place to live.
