In 1872, John Deere's son, Charles, built the Deere-Wiman House for his wife, Mary Little Dickinson Deere, and their daughters. They named their Swiss Villa style residence Overlook because of its desirable hilltop location above the growing city of Moline, Illinois, and the family business, the John Deere Plow Works. Overlook served as home to four generations of Deere descendants. After the death of Mrs. Pattie Southall Wiman in 1976, it was donated for public use under the ownership of the William Butterworth Foundation. Today, tours of Deere-Wiman House offer visitors an authentic glimpse into Victorian family life and architectural innovations of the past century.

The home's seven acres of formal gardens and walkways, as well as a child-size playhouse and three-story carriage house, beckon guests to leisurely explore the same lovely setting enjoyed by residents of a bygone era. Tours are given Monday through Friday by appointment.
