about Davenport

Davenport is a city located in the U.S. state of Iowa. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 98,359. The city is part of the Quad Cities of Iowa and Illinois. The city borders the Mississippi River. Every year the Mississippi river rises, and sometimes overflows its banks in a flood, causing millions of dollars in property damage in Davenport. Davenport is the only city over 20,000 people bordering the Mississippi that has no permanent floodwall or levee. The United States Army Corps of Engineers has continually expressed frustration at the fact that Davenport refuses to build a permanent flood-protection system like literally every other significant city on the entire Mississippi. Davenport prefers the open access to the river for parks and vistas over having access cut off by dikes and levees.

Davenport is also the home of a large and well-known Blues festival, as well as a jazz festival dedicated to Davenport native Bix Beiderbecke. An internationally known seven-mile foot race called the Bix 7 is run during the festival. Saint Ambrose University is also located in Davenport.

Buffalo Bill Cody was a native of Davenport. The city is also the birthplace of actress Lara Flynn Boyle. Former US President Ronald Reagan had worked as a radio announcer at the WOC station in Davenport.

Davenport is the county seat of Scott County.

On August 4, 2004, both of the main candidates in the 2004 Presidental election visited Davenport. Both John Kerry and George W. Bush made campaign stops in Davenport, and the events for both men were only a few city blocks away from each other. During the increased security at both events that occupied local police, three banks were robbed in the meantime.

Davenport is the home of Palmer Chiropractic College, the birthplace of the Chiropractic profession.

While situated squarely in the path of 'Tornado Alley' Davenport is believed to be protected by a blessing going back to the days when the indigenous population (Sauk and Fox tribes) lived alongside the rough and tumble European community. To this day no funnel cloud has touched within the city's boundries.
