Have you seen the Roman Venice,
Have you roamed through modern Spain,
Have you lingered long in Paris,
Have you vowed to go again?
Still the town that wins a fellow
Making him forget to grieve
Is the little town of Delphi,
There's a place that's hard to leave.
You can get to any city,
You can find most any place--
Paths that other men have threaded
You can teach your feet to trace.
But it isn't in arriving
That your bosom learns to heave;
If you ever go to Delphi
You will find it hard to leave.
Not that you would take it with you--
No one ever thought of that;
But the pictures that abide there--
Woody hills and fertile flat,
Genial people, social converse,
Friendly games that don't deceive--
Oh, the reasons, they are plenty,
That makes Delphi hard to leave.

December 19, 1973, this was the scene on East Main Street in Delphi as a blizzard struck the City. The person on the sidewalk is the late Jack Moore.
On April 22, 1977, a semi loaded with grain drove in front of a Norfolk Western train traveling toward Delphi at the SR 218 crossing near The Andersons Grain Mill. The driver of the semi and two workers on the train were killed, and five others were injured.
First it was Hardee's, then it was Arby's, and now it is ALLBQ'S. A very popular spot for the best BBQ around!
