Naper Settlement preserves the past and paves the way for tomorrow. The challenges and triumphs of Naperville’s history reflect the extraordinary stories of our growing nation. Our museum offers reminders of the bygone and inspiration for the yet-to-come. We share stories of everyday heroes that inform, fascinate and influence future generations.
Naper Settlement continues to gather and tell stories. Stories like yours. Extraordinary stories of real people who dared, who did, and who should forever be remembered.
