The West Quincy Levee Break Took Place 23 Years Ago Today

If you were around Quincy 23 years ago today, you probably know where you were when you heard the news that the levee in West Quincy failed to hold back the mighty Mississippi River. We all knew when it happened because the news and the river spread like wildfire.

One way to keep that from happening is to remind people of what took place.  For people in Quincy and the surrounding area stopping by the 9-11 artifact located in the Quincy City Hall parking lot would go a long way to making sure we never forget the attack on the United States in 2001.

Bayview Bridge Visibility Needs Improvement

On August 22 the City of Quincy, as part of their 175th Anniversary, illuminated the Quincy Bayview Bridge with spectacular colors in front of thousands of people on the Riverfront.
