Join us in celebrating Delta’s new name and city status - Delta Timeline Display

Date: January 30‐February 12 
Where: Kennedy’s Front Lobby
The Delta museum has created a timeline display to highlight some of Delta’s municipal history. The display looks back at significant milestones in Delta’s municipal history. From the signing of the incorporation papers in 1879 to becoming a city in 2017, Delta has undergone tremendous change. A timeline display shows some of these significant events while a digital kiosk allows visitors to dive deeper into the history. Contribute to the timeline by adding your personal milestones to the timeline and see how your story connects to the story of our city.
