Quincy Area Convention & Visitors Bureau

Start your visit with a stop at the Quincy CVB to get all the local information on where to visit and great local places to eat and stay.

The Quincy CVB is set within the beautfiul Villa Katherine. The Villa was built for Quincy native George Metz, who sketched the design on his travels around the world. The buidling is modeled after the Villa Ben Ahben in Morocco, but this Moroccan palace has commanding view of the Mississippi from atop a tall Mississippi bluffs. It's a wonderful building to explore while picking up travel information and ideas.

While exploring the villa, pick up brochures for driving tours of the Father Tolton and Mormon refuge sites.  Father Tolton was the first African-American priest in the United States, who escaped slavery as a child during the Civil War and came with his mother and siblings to Quincy.  The Mormon's history also connects to Quincy.  During the winter of 1838-39, Quincy provided a haven for the Mormons escaping Missouri before they settled in Nauvoo.
