HISTORY (Research completed by Cheryl Michaels and Janet Ross 2009)Deam Park is located at 2230 North Main Avenue.Deam Park is located at 2230 North Main Avenue.  This property acquired on Jan. 4, 1965 from Minnie Gillman by the City of Sidney, is named in honor of Emerson Deam.  This was done in 1966 at the February 28th Recreation Committee meeting.   Mr. Deam served in the U.S. Army in France during WW I.  During WW II he served as president of the Sidney Draft Board.   In 1939, he served as president to the new city-building commission.  Mr. Deam was Mayor of Sidney on two separate occasions.  He first served two terms from 1929-1933.  He was elected mayor again in 1952 and re-elected in 1954.  During his term as Mayor, the Planning Commission was established which in turn set up and passed the Zoning Code.  He served as chairman of the Planning Commission until he left office.  The city swimming pool was completed during this period.  The Sidney Recreation Commission was made a workable reality during his tenure.  Mr. Deam later served as a member of the City Zoning Appeals Board of which he was chairman.
