History

 

 

 


The city takes its name from Antoine LeClaire, a Métis trader of First Nations-French Canadian descent who originally owned the land. Although the city's official name is "Le Claire," it is often spelled "LeClaire," and it has also been recorded as "LeClare."

The town was incorporated in 1855, having been settled by European Americans as early as the 1830s.

Le Claire is known as the site of the reality television series American Pickers, aired by the History Channel, and home to Antique Archeology, an antiques store featured on the show. It is the birthplace of William Frederick Cody aka Buffalo Bill Cody.

Le Claire is located at 41°35′46″N 90°21′23″W (41.596233, -90.356252).

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 4.87 square miles (12.61 km2), of which, 4.67 square miles (12.10 km2) is land and 0.20 square miles (0.52 km2) is water


 

 

 

 

Education

 

 

 

LeClaire is part of the Pleasant Valley School District (District Web site), and is host to three of the district's schools. In-town elementary students attend Bridgeview Elementary, while students living in outlying areas are assigned to Cody Elementary. Junior high students are bussed to Pleasant Valley Junior High School (formerly known as Blackhawk Junior High from 1970–2001), also on the city's outskirts. The district's three other elementary schools (Pleasant View, Riverdale Heights, and Hopewell), the high school, and the district's administrative offices are located in eastern Bettendorf.

LeClaire residents have one district director on Pleasant Valley's seven-member board of education. Another director serves the city's adjacent rural areas.

From early in the town's history until 1966, the LeClaire Independent School District served the educational needs of students. Students attended a brick building at 425 N. Third St., known as Albert Gross School, which housed grades kindergarten through 12. The last LeClaire High School graduation was in 1960, after which they were tuitioned to Bettendorf. The school continued as a K-9 facility until 1966, when the district was consolidated with the Pleasant Valley School District; at that time, high school-aged students from LeClaire began attending Pleasant Valley.

The event is also associated with a largefireworks display, live band, a carnival and food on both sides of the river.

Port Byron, the 2011 champion, holds an overall record of 15-10 in the competition
