Figuring the building is around 108 years old, there are easily generations of families that have been involved and made their livelihood because of the Oscar Mayer plant in Davenport. It's been a staple on River Dr. for nearly eleven, count them, ELEVEN , decades.

That means our entire existence on this planet this building has been here.

It's going to be sad to see it go, but hopefully the next building put there lasts another 100+ years and impacts as many families in the Quad Cities as this one has.

The Oscar Mayer plant is scheduled for demolition any day now and is going to be down before we even know it. You should really check out this video from QC Drone.
