Naperville is a suburb of Chicago, and lies between Fermilab and Argonne.

Founding of Naperville

In the early 1800s, there was no regularly travelled road west of Detroit or Cincinati. The country beyond was unbroken and unknown, inhabited only by Indians and a few scattered settlements. The avenues of travel were Indian trails and buffalo runs. The stars and the sun were the only guides. A singular fact is that where the buffalo would have bivouacked would have been found the largest Indian village, which, in turn, became the places which were natural locations for our great cities. The early roads became the trunk lines of the railroads. Thus, they came, the strong and silent heroes who brought their women and children in an ox wagon.
