One comment on “Rock Island”

Rock Island is part of a quad-city complex that straddles the Mississippi River, and spreads out on both sides of the Illinois-Iowa state line. Rock Island was the location of the first bridge to be constructed across the “Father of Waters” in the 1840’s. Its sister city, Moline, is the world headquarters of the John Deere corporation.
