History of Deerfield
Our movers serve all of Deerfield, a village 25 miles north of Chicago. Today, it is home to the headquarters of several large companies, including Walgreens, Fortune Brands Home & Security, Baxter Healthcare, and Consumers Digest. Deerfield High School was ranked #5 in 2012 on the state’s ranking of high schools.
The area was originally home to the Potawatomi Native Americans. Settled in 1835, it was originally called Cadwell’s Corner. It was renamed in the mid-1800s, in honor of the Deerfield, Massachusetts hometown of settler John Millen.
In the 1850s, the home of Lyman Wilmot was used by escaped slaves attempting to reach Canada. Deerfield was proposed as a new capital city for the U.S. in 1917. When a developer planned to build affordable housing for African Americans in 1959, the concept drew controversy, and parks were built on the property instead. However, a more diverse cultural and ethnic makeup took shape by the early 1980s, and the village’s Asian, Greek, and Jewish communities have thrived.
Deerfield was listed by BusinessWeek.com as the third best place to raise children, on a list of 50 released in November 2007. Cost of living, number of schools, test scores, crime risk, and activities were factors considered.
