For the information on Delhi Hotels, I would direct you to John Raitt,
the former Delaware county Historian, who did a great deal of writing
about those hotels, and Delhi in general. He could also aid you in the
story about the feed mill. His address is Clinton Street, Delhi, NY,
He might be able to help you with info on the Delhi Fire Department as
well, or could point you to the right person.
