Delta County Historical Museum
In 1941, A
WDBC radio station building was constructed
on Sand Point in Escanaba.
The radio station used
the building until the mid-1950s when they moved
a new location downtown. The City of Escanaba
acquired the vacant
building, and in
1956 the City
agreed to let the Delta
use as a museum for the sum of one
dollar a year.
The Museum officially
opened on May 25, 1956 and
quickly filled with artifacts and heirlooms
rich history of Delta County and its people. Over the past fifty-plus years, the Delta County Historical Society has collected
a wide array of objects of historical significance, all from the
generous donations of the citizens of our county.
and additions, the Delta County Historical
Museum has changed quite a
bit over the
years, but one thing has
remained constant: the museum will
continue to do its best to
preserve the history of Delta County for future generations. Exhibits
at the Delta
County Historical Museum portray many areas of
our history, including:
shipping, the railroad industry, military, history,
Native American culture, surveying, sports, history, fishing,
local business history, and much more!
