Advocacy...

Scott County Historic Preservation Society (SCHPS) helped to establish the Historic Preservation Ordinance of the City of Davenport and maintains a presence at City Council meetings. We also work with other groups to encourage the enactment of policies, procedures and guidelines to protect historic properties and neighborhoods. These groups include:

Bricks and Mortar...

SCHPS members have enthusiastically worked hands-on in the restoration of historic Scott County sites. Members were not only involved with grant-writing and fundraising but also have volunteered as tour guides and provided labor for yard work, paint removal, repainting and numerous other restoration efforts.

Educational Activities...

These activities include:

Meetings...

Meetings, many of which are for members only, are usually held at 7 p.m. the second Thursday of every month except August and January. Locations and other details are announced in the SCHPS Newsletters. For more information call (563) 324-7779.
