Davenport lies on the west bank of the Mississippi River. The seat of Scott County, it is the third largest city in Iowa and the largest of the Quad Cities metropolitan area, which includes Rock Island, Moline, and East Moline in Illinois as well as Bettendorf in Iowa. The Quad Cities is a manufacturing and transportation center surrounded by rich farmland. Whites began settling the area after the 1832 Black Hawk War, in which the Indian Chief Black Hawk was defeated by the US Army. One of the early settlers, Antoine LeClaire, named the city for his friend George Davenport, and English trader. The first bridge across the Mississippi was built here in 1856 by the Chicago and Rock Island Railroad.
