Davenport, Iowa Houses for Sale

Davenport is located in the eastern part of the state of Iowa and is the seat of Scott County. Davenport lies in the northern bank of the Mississippi River and is the biggest of the Quad Cities. In the early 19th century, Fox Indians inhabited the region before it was acquired by outsiders and sold to a fur trading company that was headed by Colonel George Davenport. With the establishment and opening of the railroad bridge that will span up to the Mississippi River, the development and growth of both the river and that transportation assured that the city would grow as a trading center. The city’s economic activity includes manufacturers of farm machinery, clothing, alloy metal, aluminum, and processed foods. The Riverboat Casinos also flourished and contributed to the growth of Davenport’s economy.
