The town was founded by Erastmus Ingersoll and in the 1840's it was platted as Grand River City and was under consideration for the capital city of Michigan. At its height it had a grist mill, a school. Delta Mills now is being encroached and overtaken by suburbs of Lansing. Submitted by: Doug Sharp
