The Delta Archives is the repository for the documentary heritage of Delta. These archival records are comprised of family papers, photographs, organizational and municipal government records. Archival records are the essential documentation of past activity, providing reliable evidence to the decisions and functions of government, the lives of individuals, and roles that private businesses and organizations played in the community. These records are preserved so anyone who is interested in Delta’s history can access them.
