Deerfield has a fairly long history and this is the place that tells it. From the way people lived in the Ott Family Home and the way children learned in the Little Red School House, there is a lot to offer. It's a short visit but really great for kids to get a sense of local history.

I love historical stuff and was surprised to actually meet a descendent of the actual home owner, who described where she played as a child.

I live directly north of this historical village and always tell people that are visiting to use the 'Little Red Schoolhouse' as a way of knowing they are in the right area. This is delightful even if the buildings are not open. It is a set of old buildings set on a piece of land next to Deerfield Road and near the center of Deerfield. It is open for tours on Sundays, from 2 to 4 p.m., from June through September. There is also a Fall Festival, although this year (2016), there will not be one due to the extensive work being done on Deerfield Road. We always took our boys, when they were younger, and spent the afternoon as they had all sorts of inexpensive, fun, outdoor activities.

If one is interested in how one lived in "suburban Chicago" in the 1800's, this would be worthwhile. A good afternoon outing for the kids. Not something that I would go out of my way to see.
