The fire was spotted at 8 o'clock this morning at the historic Credit Island Clubhouse.
Crews were on the scene all day trying to get the fire under control.
No one was hurt or in the building at the time.
But the building is seriously damaged.
"The question is whether we will rebuilt it or not. We'll have to have structural engineers come in and look at it. It looks pretty bad. I didn't think it was this bad, but it looks like a lot of it is in pretty bad shape," says Bill Gluba, Davenport Mayor.
The building is a hundred years old and it was recently remodeled after the 2009 floods.
Now, the Lodge is used as a venue for birthday parties and weddings.
It's also a place where folks can go to rent bikes, canoes, and boats when visiting Credit Island.
Quad Citians I talked to are on the fence about what should be done with the clubhouse.
"It's a waste of money if they try to save it again. They just remodeled it and it burnt down. I think it's a sign from god that it's time to move on," says Roland Formholtz, a Davenport Resident.
"I think it has historic value. Honestly, I'd like to see it rebuilt and brought back up to standards and I'd like to see them just take better care of the island itself," says Michael Fitzgerald, a Bettendorf Resident.
