Not far from our house is Naper Settlement.
“Naper Settlement is an outdoor 19th century living history museum that serves northeastern Illinois as a unique educational and cultural resource. The village tells the story of how life changed throughout the 19th century for the people of northern Illinois in towns such as Naperville.
During this era, Naper’s Settlement was transformed from a pioneer outpost in 1831 to a bustling turn-of-the century community. Through its costumed interpreters and 30 historic buildings located on the 12-acre grounds, history is brought to life with educational and hands-on activities for 150,000 visitors each year.”
This year, the Christkindelmarkt was held at the Settlement and I was able to get a few shots of doors on some of the buildings. I’ll have to go back for an actual tour of all the houses, buildings, and grounds when it’s warmer. To visit the site of Norm, our host for Thursday Doors, and to find the link to more great doors, just click here. New door fiends are always welcome!
