TT 25: Schulz Building


William and Rose Schulz ran a combination filling station, corner grocery store, and restaurant in this building during the 1920s and 30s. Their Riverside Restaurant was locally famous for its steaks, baked ham, and chicken. They also offered rented rooms for tourists passing through town. Their location on the corner of Aurora Avenue and Webster Street on the edge of downtown Naperville was accessible to passing motorists traveling from any direction. When the Riverside Restaurant closed, the building was turned into rental apartments. Today, it serves as museum administrative offices for Naper Settlement.
