Delta is a little rural town at the southernmost edge of York County, and a trip across the Maryland state line is just minutes away. The town is so small that only 728 people were recorded living there during the 2010 census, but the locals like it that way.
Delta was home to Thomas Dale Stewart, a forensic anthropologist of the 20th century. The county is known for its slate quarries which opened in the 1840’s. In fact, slate harvested from the Delta region was named the best in the world at the 1850 Crystal Palace Exposition. Most of the houses that reside there today still have slate roofs, and pieces of the original slate sidewalks can be found along the roadways.
Delta is a fascinating location to visit if you are interested in history. Many of the houses are older and still have their original aesthetics. The town was even listed on the National Register of Historic Places back in 1983. For a unique experience, you can attend the Rehoboth Welsh Chapel that holds services not only in English, but also in Welsh. They even have a prize-winning Welsh Choir that performed at the wedding of Michael Douglas.
