Originally established as "Naper's Settlement" and now the fourth largest city in the state, Naperville was founded in July, 1831 by Joseph Naper.  Once a predominantly rural community, the city experienced an incredible population explosion during the latter part of the 20th century.  After the construction of the East-West (I-88) and North-South (I-294) Tollways, the city has nearly quadrupled in size, as Chicagoland's urban sprawl has brought large corporations such as  Bell Labs, Western Electric, Amoco Labs, Nalco Chemical, Nicor, Tellabs, ConAgra's Grocery divisional offices and OfficeMax, along with numerous job opportunities and wealth to the area.

Along with its high ranking as one of the "100 best places to live in the United States" and distinction as being voted "Most Kid-Friendly City in America" (by Zero Population Growth"), Naperville has a multitude of reasons for which to be proud: great schools - primary, secondary and post-secondary, ample opportunities forr recreation, trails for pedestrians and bicyclists, abundant shopping- with lots of free parking - a multitude of excellentt dining opportunities and affordable housing all make Naperville a destination worth considering..

Easy access to Naperville is just one more reason to take a look at this vibrant northern Illinois city which, according to the Chamber of Commerce:" is a wonderful place to live, work and do business" and according to the mayor: "It's a wonderful place to spend a day, a week, or the rest of your life."Easy access to Naperville is just one more reason to take a look at this vibrant northern Illinois city which, according to the Chamber of Commerce:" is a wonderful place to live, work and do business" and according to the mayor: "It's a wonderful place to spend a day, a week, or the rest of your life."
