Century Walk: ‘Heartland Harvest’


November brings us Thanksgiving Day as it has since before we were a United Nation. Now it is officially held on the fourth Thursday in the month as a day when we all celebrate our many blessings.

Century Walk through the creation of the 1997 “Heartland Harvest” mosaic at Main & Jefferson enables citizens to be remindful of our blessings every day. This glass tile mosaic pays homage to the farm families and crops that played such an important role in the development of Naperville.

If you reside in Naperville, you might wish to check it out and see what Farm Family originally lived were you do now. And while you’re there, be cognizant of your blessings!
