Nice
happy light
I have always been intrigued by the lost village of Delta and was happy to see a book had been published with images included. After reading the book, I was disappointed to see that there were no photos of the "during" process of flooding the lake, only pictures of the "before". I guess that's what I was most interested in.... how they disassembled the village during the process.

I have attended Delta Lake Bible Conference for many years and had known that there once was a village in Delta Lake. When this book was brought to my attention, I had to buy it. Interesting history and pictures of once was a village.

A very interesting book for anyone who is interested in the history of the Lake Delta area, many great photos of the building of the dam and of all the buildings torn down in the old village of Delta, to make way for the dam. Very informative.

I grew up in the 1950's and 60's on Delta Avenue, about 250 or so yards from the Lake. The "Long Hill Road" and the "Short Hill Road, both of which led to the once Village of Delta from Elmer Hill were within a short walking distance.

I found the photo's fantastic. I wish the buildings could have been matched to a detailed map of the village, so I could have visualized it as a whole.

I personally have seen many photos of the construction of the dam, many that were not included in the book. The only point I have to dispute with the author concerning the construction of the damn, was apparently the last piece of the structure built was on the left portion, the western portion of the dam. This is where the Black River Canal originally went thru the structure as it was being built. Once the three locks on the eastern portion of the dam were completed, the barge canal was then diverted over the Mohawk River aquaduct to those locks. Then the last "hole" in the dam, on the western side, was completed. I can only state this because I have seen at least two photos and a postcard showing this. The author states that the eastern portion of the dam was the final piece put into place. I mention this only as a point for discussion. The book was excellant.
