Naper Settlement to care for Indian Prairie School District 204's archives
Aug 24, 2015 5:04 PM - Naper Settlement recently received Indian Prairie School District 204's historic archives, which will be stored in the museum's climate-controlled Collections Care and Storage Facility. The 46 boxes of archival materials include items dating back to the late 1800s and the early 1900s, decades before Indian Prairie became a unit district in 1972. Naper Settlement President and CEO Rena Tamayo-Calabrese said, "Indian Prairie School District 204 has been our community partner for many years and we are so pleased to care for their historic records. Naper Settlement saves the past for future generations, so we don't lose those stories and we can ultimately share them with our 135,000 annual visitors."
