Day 179 -- Deer Creek

The village of Deer Creek, Illinois, was founded in 1830. Major R. N. Cullom christened it and named the township Deer Creek. Deer Creek received its name from the creek that ran through the northwest part of the township and from the herd of red deer that roamed the woods and came to the creek for water. Now you know.

If I have one complaint, its that Deer Creek didn't put a lot of good pictures on their web site. But I figured you can't go wrong with the town library.

I did hills again today. That's a lot of work. I hope that it's making me stronger, cause it's killing me.
