About Lois and Maurice Woods
We are a family of restorers. We love old houses and when we drove through Davenport on the way to the World's Fair in 1964, we vowed that one day we would come back and buy a mansion. Little did we know that it would be a 'Save This Old House' 40 years later! It has been a labor of love and at times we wondered if we would ever finish! Every molding has been stripped or recreated, pocket doors discovered, chandeliers tracked down in other cities, hardware sleuthed on eBay. We've taught ourselves to restore tile, recreate original stencils and we painted the vaulted 'sunset sky' ceiling lying on our backs on a 30-foot scaffold. It has all been worth it!
Lois and Maurice Woods purchased this Estate in 2006
Why Lois and Maurice Woods chose Davenport
It had always been our dream to restore a mansion on the Mississippi. The friendly open welcome of our Iowa neighbors has been warm and inviting. We feel we have come home to the Heartland. Saving this gem from destruction has been incredibly satisfying. We've met wonderful neighbors and feel as though we have given something back to our community by reviving this piece of local charm.
What makes this Estate unique
Travel back 120 years to a time when you would have arrived down at the dock by steamboat or down at the station by steam locomotive. Enjoy a trip back in time while enjoying all the amenities of the present. This is a wonderful party or family reunion house. This house is just a short walk to the Mississippi river with its restaurants and casinos or to the Palmer Chiropractic College.
