One of the coolest little settlement throwback towns around Illinois. A very nice and distinctive area close to shopping and dining. For all the many years I lived in Naperville I never visited until somewhat recently. Great place to go and bring your children for a History lesson. They will soon appreciate your home when the see the log cabins of the day. The cabins are actually raw timber with chinking. Get out the camera grab lunch and check it out.
My wife and I attended the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock Celebration at Naper Settlement. The band, weather and setting were perfect. We and all who attended had a really nice time.
