Century Memorial Chapel, built in 1864 in a charming Gothic Revival architectural style, provides seating for up to 175 people and offers an intimate, nondenominational setting for your special day.

Ornamental lighting, high wooden beams, decorative hand-stenciling, and brightly-colored stained glass windows enhance its historic charm. Located on Naper Settlement’s unique 12-acre site, a variety of wedding ceremony and reception opportunities are available. Receptions with both indoor and outdoor venues can be planned, depending on the group size and the desired atmosphere.

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 at Naper Settlement is by far one of the most stunning historic churches in the area. Its also wonderful because you can have a non-denominational ceremony in an actual church! Becca and her staff were wonderful to work with. My questions were answered promptly, and the day of staff were very accommodating and patient. No matter what season you get married, this church is the perfect setting, as well as the surrounding grounds. I highly recommend this church to anyone searching for a ceremony site. You’ll fall in love instantly.


It was an ideal location for us to plan our wedding and rehearsal dinner. Just steps away from River walk and many restaurants as well. Most importantly the chapel was nicely decorated and had perfect lighting for perfect wedding pictures. Beautiful location, friendly and responsive staff and memories to last a lifetime.
