The John Lueschen House is located in the West End of Davenport, Iowa, United States. The house has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1984.[1] It is located in what was historically a German ethnic neighborhood. Little is known of the early inhabitants of the house, however, John Lueschen, a butcher who owned a meat market on Washington Street, lived here in the late 19th century.[2] The small Greek Revival style residence features a simple design with shallow triangular window heads and a broad molded cornice frieze.
