I have lived in Naperville for the past 5 years and just for the first time went to Naper Settlement. It's free for Naperville residents. I really enjoyed learning some history about the town and the kids really loved the splash pad.

A very good and accessible living history attraction. The building and the staff (which are largely volunteers) make this enjoyable for a family visit. Check out the schedule on line, there are many special events at the Settlement all year long. The Chapel also is a popular wedding location.

very interesting area that takes you back in history, from the blacksmith shop to the refurbished century old mansion.

Naper settlement has something for everyone. Educational while fun place to roam, kids can learn about life when the town was first settled and roam at their own pace. Evening concerts, Sunday ice cream socials, Wednesday walking club, juried art fairs as well as Civil War days are some of the special events which you should make time for!

We visited the Naper Settlement to attend the Naperville Ale fest. The settlement was very interesting and the fest was great. Soooooo many great beers to choose from!!!! Everyone in our party of 6 enjoyed the beer, music and food. Even though there were many people there it was not overly crowded and there were not long lines for beer.... More

My husband and I got married here! They have different historic buildings on the property to view as well as an old 1800's Gothic Chapel for weddings. It has such character to it! The staff is friendly and helpful. We are so happy we had our Ceremony here!
