Moline is located in the northwestern part of the state of Illinois and a city in Rock Island County. It sits on the Mississippi that serves as a bridge to Iowa. The city forms a Quad Cities along with East Moline and Rock Island, Illinois, and Davenport and Bettendorf, Iowa. The first inhabitants recorded in the area were the Sauk and Fox Indians before the first settlements were established, and the conflict over the territory has led to the Black Hawk War in 1832. The name was said to be taken after the group of settlers that were engaged in milling operations, and it was from the French word moulin or mill in French. Moline was once called the “Plow City” and had remained to be John Deere’s headquarters, and that the farm implements continues to be a part of the city’s economic activity. The city’s economy has also been into aluminum and elevator production, as well as food processing and military. Nestled between the banks of the Rock River and the Mississippi River is the city of Moline, deep in the heart of the Midwest. It has a population of 43, 400, and is the 9th most populated city in Illinois. As an ethnically-diverse city, residents of Moline pride themselves as belonging to a wide range of ethnic and racial groups. Moline is experiencing rapid growth, with more than $250 million poured into its downtown area. As a result, the Moline Center is now filled with an amazing variety of night spots, casual and fine dining establishments, unique shopping opportunities, and entertainment venues that are all within easy walking distance. For outdoor entertainment, nothing can beat the Plaza at Bass Street Landing which lies along the city’s revitalized riverfront. The fountain gateway leads into a water feature showcasing children fishing in the Tom Sawyer era. Children can also cool off at the fountain’s zero-grade entry during hot summer days. Homes in Moline tend to be modest family homes and apartments, and most of the population is comprised of growing families. Through its tremendous transformation, Moline has evolved into a community that offers a warm welcome to all visitors, businesses, and new residents.
