Created by the Colorado legislature on February 11, 1883, Delta County's story is about the pioneers of agriculture, mining, land and water development. More than 100 years ago the Delta County area was the homeland of the Ute Indians.
Delta County is nestled between the Grand Mesa, West Elk Mountains, and the Uncompahgre Plateau in Western Colorado. The County boasts superb scenery, opportunity for a variety of outdoor activities, and some of the best orchards and wineries in Colorado.
With a population base of nearly 32,000 residents, as well as thousands of visitors who travel from around the world to experience the beauty and culture of this beautiful area, Delta County still has that sense of a friendly, rural community.
