Imagine yourself in another place and time as you walk through the beautiful museum grounds where you will experience a simpler lifestyle.
The Program: April 7 - October 27, 2021
Wednesday Walking Club is a free program for all ages. Participants must register/check-in at the front desk, and those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Get started by visiting Naper Settlement’s Pre-Emption House any Wednesday morning at 8 AM during the season! After registration/check-in, choose your route through the museum grounds, downtown Naperville, and even the Riverwalk. After your walk, return to the Pre-Emption House to log your minutes (not miles). Minutes accrue towards prizes -- including Naper Settlement swag and a Naper Nights or a History Speaks ticket.
Parking is available on Webster Street east of Porter Avenue or in the parking garage on Water Street. After 8 AM, parking is also available in the museum’s parking lot at Porter Avenue and Webster Street. Walk one block north to the Pre-Emption House Visitor Center at the corner of Webster Street and Aurora Avenue. Please do not park in the Century Memorial Chapel parking lot on Aurora Avenue.
