The Currier House is located on the eastside of Davenport, Iowa, United States. The Queen Anne residence has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1983.[1] Frederick W. Currier may have had this house built and lived here for a short time when he worked for the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company. It was later occupied by George M. Watts, who was the manager for the Standard Oil Company. This large house follows a rambling plan. It features a corner tower with a conical roof, a full height polygonal bay and gabled pavilions with short cornice returns.[2]
