The Local History Collection

We aim to preserve materials that document the history of Deerfield and the surrounding areas, including Bannockburn and Riverwoods as well as Lake County in general.

Our collection contains both print and electronic resources, including Deerfield High School yearbooks, Deerfield telephone directories, published books related to Deerfield history, unpublished manuscripts, the Deerfield Review archives, and primary source materials.

You can access our digitized resources online through the Deerfield Public Library Local History Archives. New documents are being added all the time!

To access print materials, come into the library and we can get you set up. If you are interested in donating materials to the local history archive, please contact Anne Jamieson at deerfieldhistory@deerfieldlibrary.org to get started!
