Village of Deerfield
The village of Deerfield was settled in 1835 as “Leclair” – a name that fell out of favor when residents acknowledged the numerous deer roaming wild in the area. The Caspar Ott House – today believed to be the oldest building in Lake County – was built in 1837. The original Wilmot School followed in 1847, around the time the home of Lyman Wilmot was being used as a stop on the Underground Railroad. Tragedy struck the village in 1944, when a U.S. Navy plane crashed on the current site of the Deerfield Public Library, killing Ensign Milton C. Pickens. In 1982, the village started its first community farm, which became a huge success. Today, Deerfield is home to many corporations such as Walgreens, Baxter and Takeda, the Deerfield Square and Deerbrook Mall shopping areas and the high-ranking Deerfield High School. Comfort Keepers has been serving seniors and families in Deerfield since 2000.
