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!
