Delphos is located in Allen and Van Wert Counties, and was formed in 1851 from 4 small towns. It was a major port on the Miami and Erie Canal, an early hub for narrow gauge railroads, and on the original route of the Lincoln Highway. By 1879, over a hundred factories were churning out goods for the world, and even today, the city enjoys an international reputation as a manufacturing center.

The City of Delphos is very proud of its history, with two museums on Main Street reflecting this. The Delphos Canal Commission Museums chronicles the history of Delphos, Northwest Ohio and the Miami and Erie Canal. The museum displays over a quarter million stamps, antique postal vehicles, mailboxes, and historic postal media.
