Yes, we have no bananas in the "Banana Belt of Colorado," a term applied to the Delta area because of its temperate climate and lush farmland. Delta ranches, farms and orchards have always been very productive. In 1826, French fur trader Antoine Roubideau built a trading post at the confluence of the Gunnison and Uncompahgre rivers. Delta was founded on this site in 1882. Delta is the "City of Murals," thanks to the town's arts committee. Eleven murals adorn buildings throughout town, providing an outdoors showcase for local artists and the area's heritage. The Fort Uncompahgre Living History Museum animates pioneer history, while the Delta History Museum boasts a "world-class" butterfly collection and a dinosaur bone collection. More bones can be discovered at the Dry Mesa Dinosaur Quarry in the nearby Uncompahgre National Forest. A world-famous dinosaur locality, the site has yielded the remains of 17 genera of dinosaur since 1971.
