ABSTRACT: Naper Settlement is an outdoor museum of nineteenth-century midwest American village life located near downtown Naperville, IL, a western suburb of Chicago. Established in 1969, the thirteen acre property contains thirty historical structures highlighted by the Martin Mitchell Mansion, gifted to Naperville by Caroline Martin Mitchell in 1936. Approximately half of the buildings in the museum are original structures, most from downtown Naperville moved to the site in the 1970’s. The buildings are scattered about the property connected by brick paths so it is not laid out as a model of village.
