Deb Kuntzi  refers to her home as an old friend.  Deb and her husband Paul Magnuson live in the A. D. Huesing House. The home is located in Rock Island's Broadway Historic District.

The house was built in 1885 for twelve hundred dollars. Huesing established a bottling works business in 1899 in Rock Island.

This Victorian home has a beautiful staircase, an ornate fireplace, and ten rooms. Deb and Paul bought the home for sixty thousand dollars in 1998. They spent three and a half  years and thousands of dollars renovating it.

The wood floors are original. The home is twenty six hundred square feet. Deb says it is very important to preserve as much of the original look as possible.

She thinks there is nothing quite like decorating an old, Victorian home, especially at Christmas.  She loves the home, calling it a  piece of the city's history.

A one hundred twenty eight year old gem in Rock Island. A shining star in the Broadway Historic District.
