Naper Settlement, established in 1969, is a 12-acre (49,000 m2) outdoor history museum accredited by the American Alliance of Museums that consists of a collection of thirty historical buildings and structures from the Naperville, Illinois area. Many buildings were moved here from their original locations and refurbished in a style fitting of their time periods that range from 1831, when Naperville was founded, through the early 20th century. Visitors can come for hands-on activities and tours led by museum educators in period costumes. The Settlement is situated on land bequeathed to the City of Naperville in 1936 by Caroline Martin Mitchell.

  • Awesome sauce
  • So much to say! 1. It really made me realize truly how much it truly takes a village to make anything work properly and In order. The simplistic ways of living was so nice however you had to work extra hard for everything you did in those days, most of us today in this microwave generation wouldn't have survived the days of old. They weren't lazy, and if they wanted to eat, they worked for it all. Everyone wants a rewards in life but don't wanna do the work that it takes to be rewarded. I'm sure they all were very fit in those days, especially since walking everywhere was huge.
