Get Involved

The Deerfield Area Historical Society is an all volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and interpreting local history and architecture in Deerfield, Bannockburn, Riverwoods and Lincolnshire.

Founded in 1968, we pursue an active program of community involvement and education. Our only funding is from membership dues and donations. Through exhibitions and programming, we examine local history and architecture and what contributes to the Deerfield area's identity.

Your interest in history is important to us, and we invite you to join the Deerfield Area Historical Society today. You will receive membership benefits, including invitations to members-only events and a subscription to the Society's newsletter.
