Demolition has begun on what was the old Elks Lodge 215-217 W. 4th St., in downtown Davenport. The building, which most recently was a restaurant with apartments above, was purchased by Sieg Partners, who developed Executive Square across the street. Once the building is down, the lot will be used for parking for Executive Square and may also be used for parking for the old Davenport Hotel next door, which is being renovated into apartments. The building should be down in about 1 1/2 months and about 50 parking spaces will be created. The building housed the Elks for more than 70 years, from 1906 until the new Elks lodge at 4400 W. Central Park Ave. opened in November 1879. Photo taken Tuesday, Oct. 8, 1985. Published Wednesday, Oct. 9, 1985. (Photo by Don Jones/Quad-City Times)
