The aboriginal inhabitants of the Delta area lived along the Tanana River, north of the present town. The community of Big Delta came into being just east of the junction of the Delta River and the Tanana River. A ferry there brought travelers across the Tanana.With the coming of the Alaska Highway during WWII, a community grew up at the junction of the Richardson Highway and the new Alaska or AlCan Highway. That community is now the City of Delta Junction.Today Delta Junction is a vibrant and friendly community with an economic center near the junction of the highways, but stretching far to the east and adjoining the US Army Fort Greely community to the south.
