Description: Bronze squares depicting Naperville's geographic history. Created in 1986, this piece was adopted into the Century Walk in 1998.

Plaque Text: Naperville's geographical history is whimsically depicted on the thirty-six sculpted bronze squares embedded here. The artist has created a puzzle for viewers as they search the topographical map for familiar landmarks. A covered wagon represents Naper Settlement; planks detail "Olde Plank Road;" a dragon and its footprints mark the site of the proposed Dragon Lake Reservoir; and various symbols denote schools and other points of interest in the ever-changing town.
