Downtown Naperville from earliest times formed the nucleus of the city with its shops and restaurants but had to revitalize itself with the coming of malls and chain stores in the area.  Downtown business owners and the City partnered to beautify downtown and build the Riverwalk.  Many pictures of old time businesses and interviews with long-time residents illustrate this evolution.
