The Victorian Inn Bed and Breakfast is on the National Register of Historic Places and a Local Landmark located within the Broadway Historic District in the Heart of Old Rock Island.
This 20 room Inn was built in 1876. Modernized in 1905 by a local Liquor Baron and given to his daughter as a wedding gift, the Inn has 7 fireplaces and 9 baths. There are 3,000 square feet on each floor of this 3 story mansion.
Purchased by the Parker family in 1944, this Inn continues to be our family home. Original antiques from the family and previous owners of the home adorn the 5 guest rooms. A sampling of these items include a Jenny Lind spool bed, a canopy bed, 1900's cranberry glass ceiling fixture, an 1890's armoire, and a chesser (half dresser-half chest) which was used in the chauffeur's quarters.
The Victorian Inn is at the entrance to 500 homes that comprise the Broadway Historic District, the second largest National Register area in the United States. Our historic walking tours will guide you past a home that originally was a stage coach stop. This area was birthplace to Weyerhauser lumber and home to oil barons, liquor barons, the Rock Island Lines, and the early 1900's gangster that gave Rock Island notoriety as "Little Chicago".
Located near downtown and it's Art and Entertainment District, we are in walking distance of music festivals, dinner theatre, and art galleries. We are close to the botanical center, casinos, headliner concerts, Black Hawk state park, eagle watching and the Mighty Mississippi with bike trails that stretch over 60 miles.
