Deerfield Area Historical Society Jubilee - Sunday, September 30

Caspar Ott Cabin

Celebrate the Historical Society's 50th Anniversary at their Jubilee event on Sunday, September 30, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Deerfield Historic Village. This event is kid-friendly and free for all ages.

The Jubilee will feature tours of the Historic Village, professional antique appraisals (registration required - see below), games and activities for all ages including a petting zoo, food from Dear Franks and Italian Kitchen and historic displays including the sign from the iconic Harry's Grill.


All funds raised will go toward repairs and improvements to the historic structures, including the oldest building in Lake County, the Caspar Ott log house built in 1837. As a non-profit organization, all of the Society’s services, including the maintenance of the Historic Village, are made possible by membership dues and donations.

This community event is made possible through a partnership between the Deerfield Area Historical Society, the Village of Deerfield, District 109 Schools, the Deerfield Public Library, the Deerfield Park District and the West Deerfield Township.
