WELCOME TO DELTA COUNTY MICHIGAN
Welcome to Delta County in Michigan's beautiful Upper Peninsula. Surveyed in April 1843, the county was formally organized in 1861. Today the governmental structure consists of a five member board as followed by the State of Michigan governmental structure.
Located on the northern shores of Lake Michigan in Escanaba, Delta County's growth is made up of a combination of forestry, manufacturing and tourism.
As pictured to the right, in December of 1997 the county board commissioned a bronze sculpture of Delta County to be constructed by T. D. Vinette and mounted on the south wall of the Courthouse. The sculpture is approximately 10'x11'1/2", constructed of bronze sheet and chased to effect a bas relief sculpture depicting river valleys, lakes, water front cliffs, and the townships and cities created by the joints at the boundaries of these areas.
Mr. Vinette became ill in 1999 and was aided in the completion of the sculpture by Ritch Branstrom of Stonington. the sculpture was completed and mounted on November 1, 2000. At the dedication ceremony, Board Chairman David O. Schultz, presented the sculpture to the citizens of Delta County as a tribute to the outstanding local talent we are fortunate to have and as a testimonial and inspiration to future generations.
