Description – This museum and research center is housed in the restored Germania Haus/Miller Hotel, a Victorian structure built in 1868. The hotel had served as a stopping place for Germans emigrating west in the late nineteenth century. Thousands of these Germans took up temporary residence there before finding a home in the Quad Cities or going on farther west. The facility has old documents, other records, and artifacts relating to the German immigration and how those who came affected Iowa and other states. Visitors can do genealogical research in the library, archives, and research center.
