Delta County, MI
Delta County is located in Michigan's beautiful Upper Peninsula on the northern shores of Lake Michigan. Surveyed in April 1843, the county was formally organized in 1861. At that time it included the present territory and all of what is now known as Menominee County, and parts of Dickinson, Iron and Marquette Counties. The name came from its triangular shape, like that of the Greek letter Delta.
Delta County's growth is made up of a combination of forestry, manufacturing and tourism.

The area that was to become the City of Peshtigo was first settled in about 1838. The Peshtigo River flowed from the forests where the majestic white pines grew to Lake Michigan. The waterways were the principle method of moving the logs. Logging and wood products were the economic focus of the new settlement. Wood products still provide much of the employment in the city today. The bustling boom town was destroyed by fire on October 8, 1871, the same day as the Chicago fire. Though the loss of life and property damage was far greater in Peshtigo the Chicago fire received more attention.
The City Reborn from the Ashes of America’s Most Disastrous Fire was incorporated as a Village in 1887 and as a City in 1903.
The origin of the name Peshtigo is uncertain. Explanations include an Ojibwe word meaning 'river of the wild goose', a Menominee word for 'snapping turtle', a word meaning 'passing through a marsh' or a reference to a local Menominee band known as Pesh-tiko.
