Naperville is the fourth-largest metropolis in Illinois, with an estimated population of 147,682 in 2017. Settlement at Naperville began with the arrival of Joseph Napier and a handful of other pioneers in July 1831.
A year later, Napier’s Settlement already had about 100 settlers. Development of the village was impeded by the conflict between Native Americans and settlers, most notably the Indian Creek Massacre of May 1932, when a party of Potawatomi’s and Sauk’s killed fifteen settlers, including women and children. At around the same time, the Black Hawk War, a conflict between the U.S. and Native Americans, erupted.
Naperville, on the outskirts of Chicago, spans two counties in Illinois: DuPage and Will. The city has earned many accolades. It is reputed to be the wealthiest city in the Midwest and the eleventh wealthiest in America. It has also been chosen by USA Today and Business Insider as one of the nation's safest cities.
In 2006, it was voted by Money Magazine as the second-best place to live in the United States and, in 2013, was rated first on the list of best cities for early retirement. The city has also been cited as one of the most educated large cities in America.
