A relatively compact historical village, complete with a fort and manor house. Many activities are scheduled throughout the year.
Make sure you call ahead or check the schedule to see if they will have the buildings open! There are times when the Settlement is open, but not all the buildings are. They do have "actors" performing the tasks of blacksmith, etc on scheduled days. It is important with this site to know in advance what activities are on-going and which buildings are open.
I remember first going to Naper Settlement as a young school child. It made enough of an impression that I chose their beautiful chapel for our wedding. The location near downtown Naperville also makes it easy to do a day in the area. The Riverwalk is about 4 blocks away with a large park, sled hill, paddle boats and the Millennium Carillon tower.
