The Renwick Mansion is one of Davenport’s most beautiful places to host a wedding, reunion, party, or another event.
The home was built by William Renwick, who took over a lumber/sawmill business founded by his father, James, an immigrant from England. The mansion is Davenport’s finest example of Italian Revival Villa architecture. The home features a large Fourth-story tower that overlooks Davenport and the Mississippi River, amazing wooden trim and 12-14 foot doors, 8 bedrooms available for rent, 8 fireplaces, a 3 story staircase, a limestone exterior and it sits on 4 acres in the heart of Davenport. In 1907, the mansion became part of St. Katharine’s School, and in 1973 was sold and became part of a nursing home complex. Although it was listed on the National Register of historic places in 1983, the home fell into disrepair. The ailing complex was purchased by a historic property developer in 1997, who renovated the St. Katherine’s location and the Renwick House. In 2007, the Renwick was updated with geothermal and opened to the public as a wedding reception venue and bed and breakfast. After closing in 2016 the Renwick House has opened once again in 2017 as a premier location for weddings, receptions, reunions, parties, and meetings.
The Renwick Mansion is one of Davenport’s most amazing locations. The beauty, elegance, and history of the mansion are truly one of a kind. We are so excited and humbled to be able to re-open the doors of the Renwick Mansion to the public to be rented for weddings, reunions, parties, and events. I hope you get the chance to experience the unique feel of the Renwick!
