Scott County, located in the great state of Iowa, was established on December 21, 1837. The county was named after General Winfield Scott, a prominent figure in the Black Hawk War, which took place between 1831 and 1832. The area was first explored by French explorer Jacques Marquette and Louis Joliet in 1673. In the early 19th century, settlers, primarily from Germany, Belgium, and Ireland, began to make their homes along the Mississippi River.

Davenport, the largest city in Scott County, was founded in 1836 by Antoine LeClaire, a fur trader and frontiersman. The city later became a prominent part of the American transportation system, with its steamboat industry and railroads, contributing significantly to the local economy. Scott County's economy has historically relied on agriculture, industrial manufacturing, and transportation.

The county boasts a vibrant mix of rural and urban landscapes, with picturesque parks, breathtaking views of the Mississippi River, and the historic Village of East Davenport, a preserved 19th-century neighborhood with unique shops, cafes, and galleries.

One fun fact about Scott County is that it is home to the first railroad bridge built across the Mississippi River. This bridge was completed in 1856, connecting Davenport, Iowa, and Rock Island, Illinois. The construction of the bridge helped Scott County become a vital hub for trade and transportation in the region.
