Naperville is home to a vibrant downtown historic home district
Taking a stroll through the historic district in downtown Naperville is a popular thing for visitors to do while in our town.
To be considered a historic home by the Naperville Historic Society a home must be at least 50 years old. There are homes much older than 50 years.
Integrity is another prerequisite for being listed as a historic home. According to the National Register, a specific property’s integrity is defined through 7 qualities: location, setting, materials, design, workmanship, feeling, and association. Simply put, does the property still look the way it did in the past? Does it radiate an aesthetic feeling of history? Is the workmanship representative of a specific architectural style or method of construction during a certain time period?
If a home answers yes to all of these, most probably the house will be classified as a historic home.
Lastly, significance. Does this property have a rich backstory of historic events? Was it witness to events that were of historic significance in its day? If the property is connected to or associated with important events, people, or developments of the past, this is a good sign that it is a historical landmark.
