Below is some general information about Deerfield:
Deerfield is an affluent community in Cook and Lake counties in the U.S. state of Illinois, approximately 25 miles north of Chicago. The population was 18,225 at the 2010 census, a 175 person decline from the 2000 census. Deerfield is home to the headquarters of Walgreens, Baxter Healthcare, Business Technology Partners, APAC Customer Services, Fortune Brands, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, Consumers Digest and Cosi. Deerfield High School is one of the top high schools in the state, ranking #5 in 2012. Trinity International University, an evangelical Christian university, is located in nearby Bannockburn.
As of the census of 2000, there were 18,420 people, 6,420 households, and 5,161 families residing in the village. The population density was 3,359.4 people per square mile. There were 6,518 housing units at an average density of 1,188.7 per square mile. The racial makeup of the village was 95.88% White, 0.33% African American, 0.04% Native American, 2.52% Asian, 0.02% Pacific Islander, 0.43% from other races, and 0.77% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 1.69% of the population.
Originally populated by the Potawatomi Native Americans, the area was settled by Horace Lamb and Jacob B. Cadwell in 1835 and named Cadwell’s Corner. A shopping center located on the site of Cadwell’s farm at Waukegan Road and Lake Cook Road still bears that name. The area grew because of the navigable rivers in the area, notably the Des Plaines River and the Chicago River. By 1840, the town’s name was changed to Leclair. Within a decade, settler John Millen proposed a further name change to Deerfield in honor of his hometown, Deerfield, Massachusetts and the large number of deer living in the area. At the time, the alternate name for the village on the ballot was Erin. Deerfield won by a vote of 17-13. The village’s first school, Wilmot School, was founded in 1847.
Located in front of Kipling Elementary School is the Deerfield Historic Village, founded and maintained by the Deerfield Area Historical Society. This outdoor museum consists of five historic buildings and includes the headquarters for the Deerfield Historical Society. The Historic Village includes the Caspar Ott House, considered to be the oldest building in Lake County, built in 1837. It was restored by Bob Przewlocki. The George Luther House (1847) now includes the Society’s offices and Visitor Center. The Bartle Sacker Farmhouse (1854) is a typical 19th century home. While those buildings are all original, the carriage house and little red school house are replicas.
Deerfield is home to the headquarters of Baxter Healthcare, Beam, Big Apple Bagels, CF Industries, Consumers Digest, Cosi, Fortune Brands Home & Security, Mondelez International, United Stationers, and Walgreens, As of 2009 Walgreens employed 5,200 people at its headquarters. As of 2003 Baxter employed a total of 1,000 employees in its headquarters and in other offices in Deerfield. Deerfield was at one time the bakery division headquarters of the Sara Lee Corporation.
