Deerfield History

Red Schoolhouse PhotoIn District 109, we honor our past while preparing our students and our schools for the future. We partner with the Deerfield Area Historical Society to ensure that we recognize our roots. The District Center, at 517 Deerfield Road, shares land with the Deerfield Historical Society’s Historic Village, including the Little Red Schoolhouse, which has become the symbol of District 109. Each spring, fourth grade students from all four elementary schools visit the Historic Village for a day of authentic pioneer learning. You can hear the school bell ring!
