Delphos (pop. about 7,000) is known for its small-town charm and community-oriented atmosphere.
The city was founded in 1845 and named after the ancient Greek city of Delphi. It initially developed as an agricultural and industrial center due to its strategic location along the Miami and Erie Canal. Delphos experienced significant growth during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, thanks to the expansion of railroads and the establishment of various manufacturing industries.
One notable feature of Delphos is its historic downtown area. The downtown district is characterized by well-preserved 19th-century buildings that now house a variety of local shops, restaurants, and businesses. The architecture reflects the city’s rich history and adds to its unique charm.
Delphos is home to several annual events and festivals that bring the community together. One of the most popular events is the Delphos Canal Days, which celebrates the city’s canal heritage and features parades, live music, arts and crafts, and various activities for all ages.
