With 3,665 buildings on the National Register, Quincy is one of the hottest architectural spots in the Midwest! From the solid, brick structures in the German Calftown District to the gorgeous, stately homes in the East End Historic District, Quincy is a must see for everyone who appreciates stunning and meticulously maintained architecture and lush lawns and gardens.

The place we love to go back to on vacation. That says it all. A wonderful place we are proud to say we were raised there.

I am in love with Quincy! It is a great place to live for many reasons - Number 1 is that it is beautiful! Quincy is the largest town around for 100 miles or so and there are lots of interesting things to do here. There are many festivals and events that celebrate life, fine arts, athletics, the fine architecture, holidays, and the lovely Dogwood tree.

I was born and raised in this beautiful town. It will always be the place I call "home". I still have family and lots of friends there and try to get back as often as possible. Anyone who's never visited has no idea what they're missing. Love this place!

Quincy, Illinois has beautiful architecture and many great historical homes. The town being near the Mississippi River adds to the character. Lots of trees that add huge amounts of color during the fall season. Quincy has a good balance of history and modern. It is a good town to raise a family in. Quincy is a very clean city also, you can tell that the people that live there take pride in their town. Christmas in Quincy is a festival for the eyes too with all of the lights and decorations downtown.
