Geography of Delhi
Delhi is located at 32°27′21″N 91°29′36″W? / ?32.45583°N 91.49333°W? / 32.45583; -91.49333 (32.455948, -91.493345). The town lies at the confluence of US Highway 80 and Louisiana Highway 17, and near to Interstate Highway 20.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 2.6 square miles (6.7 km²), of which, 2.5 square miles (6.5 km²) of it is land and 0.1 square miles (0.2 km²) of it (2.33%) is water.
The town's relatively high elevation of 89 ft spared it from the brunt of the massive 1927 Mississippi River flood that destroyed most of the surrounding Mississippi River Delta area.
The newly constructed Poverty Point Reservoir, which hosts the acclaimed Black Bear Golf Club, is located just north of the town on Louisiana Highway 17 near Warden, Louisiana.
The Town of Delhi recently teamed up with the Northeast Louisiana Economic Alliance to provide the local region with powerful tools that will enable the best presentation of assets suitable for economic development.
There is always something great happening in Delhi. Along with our annual Poverty Point Festival every fall, we have many other events every month.
