A Wedding for the History Books
Built in 1864, the charm and elegance of Century Memorial Chapel comes through in its original stained glass windows and decorative hand stenciling. The curved buttresses, carved pews and globe lighting highlight the Gothic Revival style of architecture. With seating for up to 175 guests, our nondenominational chapel is the perfect setting for your wedding ceremony. Come make some memories in one of Chicagoland’s only historic wedding chapels!
After your ceremony, host your reception inside one of our historic buildings or plan a tented reception just outside the beautiful Martin Mitchell Mansion.
Historic rooms are also available to rent for rehearsal dinners, bridal showers and receptions.
Philosophy: Your wedding should be as unique as you are!
“Century Memorial Chapel could not have been more perfect and I would absolutely recommend it to everyone. Our favorite part of the entire wedding day was the ceremony – so thank you to everyone at Naper Settlement for all your attention to detail that made our day exactly what we envisioned!”
~Rafael & Jacqueline
“I have always wanted to get married at Naper Settlement. The staff was amazing during the planning process and kept everyone organized and calm.”
