Environmental pathways and landscaping
A major roadways and stormwater management project in 2011 has transformed the grounds into an eco-friendly environment. The brick paths are permeable pavers, which are surrounded by rain gardens, a bioswale and other features that help manage and purify stormwater.
Through the vision of Naperville residents such as Caroline Martin Mitchell and the Naperville Heritage Society, Naper Settlement has continued to thrive and grow. Plans for the future include adding more historic homes and continuing to preserve the past while looking to the future.
