Overview
The picturesque town of Deerfield is located in the heart of historic Pioneer Valley. The town is famous for its beautifully preserved historic Old Main Street, its scenic fertile farmland, Historic Deerfield, Memorial Hall Museum, and the two-hundred-year-old Deerfield Academy. Many photographers and railroad fans are familiar with the East Deerfield Freight Yard, and many visitors enjoy going to see the Yankee Candle Company in South Deerfield. Deerfield's history is interesting not only to its guests but also to the many residents who spend their lives there. In Deerfield, vintage images encompass all sections of the town, including South Deerfield. The photographs reveal the early days of the railroad, historic houses, and important residents. They capture scenes of the Old Main Street in Old Deerfield, which retains much of its original character, and the agricultural landscape, which drew both the Native Americans and, later, the European settlers to Deerfield. The images in Deerfield reflect upon significant times of the past and celebrate that rich history.
