The 21st Century Community Cornerstones Project


In 1991 Deerfield Historic District Commission took part in a statewide cornerstones project to identify the town's Cornerstones for the 21st Century. These cornerstones were to be resources and treasures that help make our community what it is; that are essential to our quality of life, and that we would like to see our children and grandchildren enjoy into the 21st century. The purpose of the project was to raise awareness of the importance of these resources so that they might be preserved for the 21st century.
