Century Memorial Chapel Weddings

Naperville Wedding Venue for the History Books!

Built in 1864, the charm and elegance of Century Memorial Chapel comes through in its original stained glass windows and decorative hand stenciling. The curved buttresses, carved pews and globe lighting highlight the Gothic Revival style of architecture. This historic wedding venue near downtown Naperville, Illinois was moved in 1970 from Jefferson and Ellsworth Streets in Naperville to its present site as the cornerstone of Naper Settlement, a history museum.

With seating for up to 175 guests, our nondenominational chapel is the perfect setting for your wedding ceremony. Come make some memories in one of Chicagoland’s only historic wedding chapels!
