Save the Moline Depot
MPS, together with the Moline Historic Preservation Commission, City of Moline, and others, is working again to find a suitable home for the Moline train depot. Visit Save the Moline Depot to learn about our previous efforts to raise more than $160,000 to pay for the relocation. Now, help us find the Depot a new home.

MPS was founded in 1986 by a group working to prevent the demolition of the 1858 Joseph Huntoon House. The Italianate home, which included hand-painted ceilings by Swedish artist Frank Lundahl, was ultimately demolished. Although the house and its history were lost, a strong Moline Preservation Society emerged as a result.
In late 2012, MPS joined other community leaders to raise more than $160,000 to save the last surviving train depot in Moline. Learn more about our efforts at our special website, Save The Moline Depot.
