Nestled in a beautiful wooded bluff overlooking the Mississippi river the McClellan neighborhoods provide a truly amazing neighborhood for would-be home owners in one of Davenport’s most fascinating and historical areas.
According to Wikipedia, “McClellan Heights is the largest neighborhood in the east end of Davenport. It is located east of the Village of East Davenport. It runs from Jersey Ridge Road to the Bettendorf city limits, and from River Drive to Middle Road. Dating from 1905-1940, four hundred houses make up the McClellan Heights neighborhood. The neighborhood is made up of many hills and ravines. The streets follow the topography which requires many winding roads and odd-shaped lots. The southern portion of McClellan Heights is very wooded which adds to the attractiveness of the neighborhood.Developed from south to north, including four very large mansions built before World War I, the area became popular with upper-middle class residents. The area was mostly settled by Dutch and New England immigrants. The park-like setting, and proximity to and view of the river, have kept this neighborhood fashionable even today. The houses remain in good to excellent condition. The few brick streets that run through the neighborhood also remain in excellent condition.
Add to this the neighborhood call McClellan Park that runs the length of Middle Road in Davenport to Locust Street and you have two outstanding vintage neighborhoods with homes that can meet nearly every taste and every price point! The homes in McClellan Park are newer and on smaller lots for the most part. They provide opportunity for vintage home buyers who love vintage buy have a need for a lower price point.
All in all no vintage home buyer should make a decision without first considering the McClellan neighborhoods!
