Type Summary
Text WEST DEER TOWNSHIP. This township was formed in 1836, by the division of Deer. Its area had previously been considerably curtailed by the formation of Indiana in 1805. As thus reduced, Deer was a narrow, rectangular township extending about sixteen miles along the Butler county line, and about six miles wide. West Deer received the larger part of this territory, and its limits included portions of Hampton and Richland in addition to its present area.
