Crow RiverThere is a lot of history to this small town and early in 1999 the first Historical Society of Delano was formed.

The relationship between the establishment and growth of the City of Delano and the Crow River (pictured here) is an important and historic part of Delano.

The river has presented numerous engineering challenges over the years to control the flow of flood waters every year, but adds scenic beauty to downtown, and was the primary route for commerce when our city was founded.
