Naperville is a fantastic place to live...and others agree. In fact, it was rated as the 2nd best place to live in the USA by Money Magazine in 2006. A 2010 study ranked it as the wealthiest city in all of the midwest among those with a population of 75,000 or more.

History

Joseph Naper stepped foot onto what would become Naper Settlement all the way back in 1831. A year later, Naper Settlement had a population of 100.

Naperville became an official city in 1890 and remained a somewhat quaint town for another 70 years. It wasn't until the 1960's that the population really started growing. And then, in the 80's and 90's, the population really exploded due to highways, jobs, and wealth.
