OLD SCHOOL OF THE DAY
The Deerfield Historic Village School
517 Deerfield Road
The Deerfield Area Historical Society created and maintains the Deerfield Historic Village. Through the historic buildings, exhibits, and programs, they bring history to life and share it with the community. The Village consists of five buildings dating from 1837 to 1905 that offer a look at a typical prairie community.
One of the most popular buildings in the Village is the Little Red Schoolhouse, circa 1890, a replica of a 19th century one-room school furnished with period school items. Every child in District 109 attends class for one day at the schoolhouse as part of their local history program.
