Deer Park, Ohio
Earlier in the century, herds of deer came to this thickly wooded area to drink from the many streams and brooks.
The woodlands and cool shaded waters have long since disappeared, but Deer Park still maintains a quiet, restful atmosphere. The adjoining community of Dillonvale has a similar personality. Branching off from the business section are many tree-shaded streets with dwellings that range from ranches and Cape Cods to homes that are tastefully designed, but less expensive. Although most of the residents have been here for many years, Deer Park and Dillonvale are beginning to attract new residents. Both communities offer wholesome living in an area that never lost its respect for peace and quiet.
