Delhi is a village on the Delaware River, and is the seat of Delaware County. Delhi has a population of around 2,500. The village was incorporated in 1821.

Delhi (pronounced "del-high") residents originally wanted to name the settlement "Mapleton", but friends of Judge Ebeneezer Foote, who helped found Delaware County,asked to be allowed to choose the name. Since Judge Foote's nickname was "The Great Mogul", which was the European name for the Emperor of Delhi in India, the name of the Indian city was used.
