Visit this award-winning interactive exhibit that chronicles Naperville's history through the artwork of local artist Les Schrader.

About the Artist
Les Schrader was born in 1907 just south of Naperville, and he never wandered far. The house his family moved to on Webster Street a year after Les’ birth was just two doors down from the home he lived in at the time of his death in 1984.

Les was a self-taught artist. Throughout his life, he drew his favorite subjects - horses and Native Americans. By profession, he painted signs and created special furniture finishes for Naperville's world-known Kroehler Manufacturing Company. View more about Les Schrader.
