East Moline, Illinois

East Moline is located on the Mississippi River in Rock Island County and is one of five cities that make up the “Quad Cities” metropolitan area. Originally named Watertown, East Moline was given its current name in 1914, after Watertown became an annexed city. Soon thereafter, East Moline Land Company was formed and helped facilitate the city’s plans for redevelopment towards the future.

East Moline experienced total renewal after its redevelopment plans were completed; the city now has a functioning harbor, parks, schools, a library, and a bridge across the Mississippi River. East Moline State Hospital was founded in these early days and, in 1980, the healthcare facility was converted to East Moline Correctional Center which continues operation today. Organizations first attracted to East Moline’s strategic location along the banks of the Mississippi include John Deere Malleable Iron Works, International Harvester, and American Machine and Metals Inc. As a result of the sound local economy, East Moline saw an influx of immigrants of many ethnic backgrounds, and the city’s population swelled. East Moline’s current top employers are Deere and Company and East Moline Correctional Center.
