LeClaire House to host fundraiser September 24 to benefit 'Museum Without Walls'

Join River Action and take a step into 1856 at the LeClaire House in Davenport for the "Museum Without Walls" fundraising event Sunday, Sept. 24.

Enjoy re-enactments of Antoine LeClaire, Buffalo Bill, a fur-trader, drummers and dancers from the Native American Coalition, Henry Farnam, and members of the 3rd Iowa Cavalry.

Learn about the Effie Afton steamboat accident and listen to recollections of the Black Hawk Treaty signing.

The documentary “East Meets West: The First Railroad Bridge to Cross the Mississippi River” will be shown continuously throughout the event, and a play about the first bridge across the Mississippi River, written by Chuck Oestreich, will be performed at 3 p.m.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit Museum Without Walls, which consists of 12 historic sites in and around Davenport relating to early settlement of the area.
