Naper Nostalgia

Thanks for visiting this category on PN’s website. Many posts and photos have been saved in our archives in the cloud.

In 1925, the Naperville Woman’s Club (chartered in 1897) purchased the German Evangelical People’s Church building to use as its “clubhouse” for meetings and gatherings. In 2011, the Naperville City Council designated the historic structure at 14 S. Washington Street as a Local Landmark.

Note… Some memorable events happen every year at exactly the same time. For instance, Veterans Day is always celebrated at 11AM Nov. 11. Simply remember “11-11-11.” Thank a Veteran. Thanks for reading!

Find Veterans Park along Gartner Road, always a place to pause and reflect about freedom.

Since 1831, local families, roads, public safety, faith and education have mattered as settlers arrived to the banks of the DuPage River. Thanks for supporting your hometown community whenever possible.
