Memories of Delphi's South Hill

To the hundreds who grew up on the South Hill of Delphi, Indiana, this is a book about “home.” It’s a place where a myriad memories of carefree childhood activities were made. It was a safe place, where any mom had the same authority as our own and where we knew almost everyone, and they knew us. Using newspaper clippings, photos, and memories, this book and Facebook page tell the story about growing up on Delphi’s South Hill in the 1950s and 1960s. It includes a bit of history and a bit about the homes and businesses, but mostly it’s about some of the people who gave the community its character and influenced generations to come.
