Quincy is a lovely town that I was very lucky to grow up in,with the most beautiful homes on Maine street and wonderful parks. I left Quincy in the 80,s but will always call it home.

Quincy sits on the bluffs over looking the Mississippi River. It has some of the most beautiful parks and tree lined streets I've ever seen. And the historical homes with some very unique architecture around makes this town a must see in your travels through the mid-west. I've moved away a few times and all the roads always led me right back to my home town of Quincy.

This is one of the best and most unique small towns in America. Located along the mighty Mississippi River, there are many parks and scenic views of the river - especially Riverview Park. There are many historic homes, museums, an 1800's Log Cabin Village, and an Antique Auto Museum (open Sunday afternoons during the sumemr) that has over 30 member owned collector cars.

My beautiful hometown! Even though I haven't lived there for many years, I will always consider it home.

Quincy has some of the greatest views of the mighty Mississippi River, great tasting catfish at many of the restaurants along the waterfront along with lots of historical buildings and cemeteries. German architecture is prevalent throughtout.
