Deerfield, Ill., has grown from a crossroads settlement into a thriving community. A strong education system, a variety of activities and an affordable cost of living combined to earn Deerfield a third-place ranking in Business Week’s 2007 list of the best places to raise children.
In the spring of 1835, a group of settlers came up the Des Plaines River and settled in the area now known as Deerfield. Among the settlers was Jacob Cadwell, who established his homestead, Cadwell’s Corners, at the crossroads of Deerfield and Waukegan roads. The Ott family arrived in 1837, and Lymon Wilmot arrived in 1840. Wilmot’s home became a stop on the Underground Railroad.
The stage came to Deerfield in 1836 and the first road in 1841. The Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad arrived in 1872. Renamed Le Clair in 1840, the village underwent a second name change in 1849, when settler John Millen recommended the name of Deerfield in honor of his birthplace, Deerfield, Mass. The village was incorporated in 1903.
