The Town of Deerfield is located in central Dane County, Wisconsin. We are a rural community east of Wisconsin’s capital, City of Madison. The Town of Deerfield was organized in 1849, with the first settlers being Norwegian immigrants. A current population of approximately 1,597 enjoys the rural atmosphere with the convenience of being close to larger cities. There are four school districts within our town and they are: Deerfield, Cambridge, Marshall and Stoughton.
