    We, as the Gold Coast & Hamburg Historic District Association, are dedicated to preserving the built heritage of Davenport's First Neighborhood. Additionally, we collect its histories providing context and understanding of the great importance of this district. Because all great neighborhoods are made up of people, families, and friends, we organize and sponsor events to bring people together, support the association, and become a more powerful voice within the community.
