Although farming was very important to Deerfield, these detailed maps of the Town's population centers show a range of business activity in the area. Tobacco sheds, small factories, stores, and hotels all appear on the map. A long list of business notices gives additional information on the people who were farming, running factories, and selling, or services such as doctors. The maps not only show the names of homeowners, but they also show the footprints, or outlines, of the buildings in the villages.
