Clarissa C. Cook envisioned a better future for Davenport residents when she provided funding to help build the Trinity Episcopal Church and a library in the city. But her greatest legacy was the Clarissa C. Cook Home for the Friendless, constructed with trust funds she set aside for use after her death. The Home welcomed older women with no family and few resources, and offered them a peaceful place to age.
The building has become a landmark in the southwest part of the city.

The Clarissa C. Cook Retirement Home was originally a 35-room mansion. It was donated to the Good Samaritan Society in 2013 and remodeled into nine senior living apartments. While the second and third floors were converted into apartments, the first floor has remained largely the same and true to the era the home was built. Tenants can use the common areas on the first floor, and a new garage was built with space for each tenant.
The one- and two-bedroom apartments are each unique and range in size from 500 square feet to 900 square feet. Features include:
- Satellite TV
- All utilities, except phone
- Appliances, including washer and dryer, in unit
- Lawn care and snow removal
- Public Wi-Fi
