Stops along this tour bring our area’s rich history to life by highlighting architecture, businesses, institutions and fascinating sites through the stories of the people who were there at the time. QC PastPort is a way for all generations to have fun and learn a bit in the process. Celebrate our area’s triumphs and remember our struggles as you weave your way through what makes up this place we call the Quad Cities!
QC PastPort aims to keep all of our history alive. We have a collaborative team and we work with many Keepers of the Past, from local historians to other organizations dedicated to preserving history. We want to hear your stories and work with you. We encourage historic sites in our area to join us in telling their stories in a fun and innovative way. Together we will make sure these stories are heard throughout the community. QC PastPort is here to inspire all of us to recognize, celebrate and honor our rich history!

Why Is This Important?
How will we know it’s us, without our past.
People forget that the word history contains the word story.
We shape our buildings; thereafter, our buildings shape us.
There may have been a time when preservation was about saving old buildings here and there, but those days are gone. Preservation is in the business of saving communities and the values they embody.
