Glen Armil is truly beautiful neighborhood that was developed beginning in the 1930’s. According to the Glen Armil Neighborhood Association:
“The Glen Armil/Petersen Additions were developed in the 1930’s and 1940’s. The architecture varies and it is worth noting the many styles present along our streets. “Glenarmil addition” was approved in 1930 by the City of Davenport, but didn’t really get going until after World War II.
Preceding the Glen Armil addition on the west side of Marquette Street was the grounds of Mercy Hospital. Begun in 1869 by the catholic order Sisters of Mercy to tend to influenza patients, The present building has evolved from a series of several buildings with separate names including the infamous St Elizabeth’s insane asylum which burned to the ground in January of 1950, killing 41. The fire remains the 3rd deadliest in US history. There were many residents of Glenarmil addition to witness the conflagration. In 1994 Mercy merged with cross town rival St Luke’s to form Genesis Health systems.”
