Now in our 28th year!

Welcome!

Founded in August 1994, the Delphi Preservation Society held its first meeting during Delphi's Old Settlers Celebration.  As an Indiana non-profit organization, we strive to preserve the historic architectural and cultural integrity of Delphi, Indiana.

Among our accomplishments is the restoration of the 19th-century Delphi Opera House as a performance venue and community center. The Society offers educational programs and architectural tours, nominates properties for listing in the National Register of Historic Places, sponsors historic residence plaques, and recognizes the achievements of individuals and organizations in preservation activities.
