A Short History

Quante's Riverview Mansion was crafted in the late 1880's. It had the first phone, home elevator, and a flush-toilet septic system in southern Illinois. Electricity came from a Tesla built generator on a steam engine across the street.  Fisher’s Hospital in the 30s, a family home, a BnB, it has had a colorful life.
