History of Century Farms


Century Farms gets its name from the Erb Farm, which was located on the property for, presumably, a century.

You can see the names "Joshua Erb" and "John Erb" just northwest of Naperville city on a land ownership map from 1874, indicating that the Erb Farm was here for at least 1 1/4 century. 

The Erb family cemetery is just north of Commons Blvd. at West Street.

There is an aerial picture of the property before our homes were built (also available in a larger image)

See this website with information about the family of Joshua Erb
