The Broadway Historic District, Rock Island, is proud to announce the two most recent winners of Broadway’s Beautification Award for the Fall and Winter of 2018.
The District congratulates Diane Von Dresky and Nicole Watson Lam for the excellent work they have both completed maintaining their beautiful homes (Channon House and Cowden House) on Lincoln Ct and 20th St.

The next Broadway Beautification Award deadline is April 22nd. Please feel free to submit nominations to
