Memorial Hill in Scott County Park
Memorial Hill consists of a circle of sidewalk. Inside the circle is a flagpole and an engraved boulder dedicated to the GAR. Outside the sidewalk is a semi-circle of tablets. This includes a bronze rendition of the Gettysburg Updateress and three tablets from the old Courthouse engraved with the names of pioneer settlers of Scott County. On either side are relief sculptures - one is inspired by the Iowa Seal with a Civil War soldier holding the U.S. flag. The other features an eagle perched on a plow inside a shield. The memorial is located inside Scott County Park north of Davenport. Take exit 129 from Highway 61 - east on 267th Street - north on Scott Park Road - then east on 270th to the Park entrance. Memorial Hill is on the eastern edge of the park near the swimming pool. Once inside the park, take the first right turn. Thanks to Dustin Oliver for providing the excellent description of this impressive memorial. Also thanks to Dustin for the photo of the pioneer settlers tablet taken 8/2/08. Other photos taken 9/28/12.
