German American Heritage Center

German journalist Joseph Eiboeck called Davenport “the most German city, not only in the State, but in all the Middle West, the center of all German activities in the State.” That makes sense; when the Standard Hotel opened its doors in the 1860s, it played host to many new residents of the town, many of which were German immigrants. Now the historic building is the home of the German American Heritage Center, a non-profit that seeks to keep their cultural heritage alive. Permanent exhibits, such as the multimedia-focused "German Immigrant Experience," paint a picture of life as an immigrant, while temporary exhibits can focus on very specific stories. One such story focuses on German-American Charles Bush, who helped spark the country's love of kaleidoscopes.
