Some of the “heavy lifting” has already been accomplished. Our downtown district has been designated an historic district on the National Register of Historic Places. We were recently awarded a Community Development Block Grant for the purpose of rehabilitating thirteen historic building facades in the district – the construction of which is already underway. The restoration of our historic train depot is almost finished, as well. When this multi-million dollar project is completed in 2013, it will operate as both a railroad museum and a passenger train station serving our two daily Amtrak trains. Our gorgeous riverfront features a replica of “Old Fort Madison”, our community’s namesake, which was a frontier military outpost on the Mississippi River from 1808-13. Also, two of the district’s restaurants have received accolades from publications including Time Magazine, Midwest Living, Chicago Tribune, and USA Today.
