OUR HERITAGE
The monument "In Flanders Field" is located at the Rock Island National Cemetery on Rock Island's Arsenal Island.
Another monument is the Belgian Immigrants Memorial in Stephens Park. It is dedicated to the Belgians who settled in Moline during the late 1800's and early 1900's.
Rolle Bolle courts are maintained at Stephens Park near the Olde Towne District on 7th Street in Moline and in surrounding communities throughout the Quad Cities.
Special collections and archival materials are housed at the Center for Belgian Culture and at the Rock Island County Historical Center, 822 11th Avenue Drive in Moline, near Olde Towne.
Sacred Heart Church, 1307 17th Avenue in Moline, was established in response to Belgian settlers' petition to the diocese for a church of their own. The cornerstone was laid by Cardinal Mercier of Belgium in 1919.
