The fertile expanse of Delta County is situated in northeast Texas between the North and South Sulphur Rivers. The area’s triangular shape resembles the fourth letter of the Greek alphabet, which has given the county its unique name. Three quality school districts serve the county — Cooper Independent, Fannindel Independent, and Chisum Independent — offering personalized attention in classrooms with excellent teacher/pupil ratios. Opportunities for higher education available close to home range from the two-year degree and certification programs at Paris Junior College in Paris to the array of undergraduate and graduate programs at Texas A&M University in Commerce.

Residents of Delta County have easy access to a number of medical services and facilities that meet specialized as well as routine healthcare needs. St. Joseph’s Clinic is available locally in Cooper, which is also the location of a physical therapy clinic. Hopkins County Memorial Hospital and Presbyterian Hospital in Commerce offer a comprehensive range of medical and surgical specialties. Hopkins County Memorial Hospital maintains a staff of more than 40 physicians with specialties in family practice, internal medicine, women’s service, pediatrics, vascular surgery, cardiology, gastroenterology, neurology, otolaryngology, and urology. The 30-bed Presbyterian Hospital offers comprehensive in-patient services including 24-hour emergency care.

Nestled in the heart of northeast Texas, Delta County represents a fertile agricultural greenbelt surrounded by several urban centers like Paris to the north, Sulphur Springs to the south, and Commerce to the west. The county seat of Cooper is the largest population center in the region, providing an anchor for other small but active communities like Pecan Gap, Enloe, Klondike, Charleston, Lake Creek and Ben Franklin. Newcomers to Delta County will find the relaxed pace of a rural environment in close proximity to first-rate amenities and services.

Recreational opportunities are outstanding in this rural area, anchored by the 3,026-acre Cooper Lake State Park. Just a few miles south of the City of Cooper, outdoor enthusiasts will discover a natural paradise where a 19,300-acre lake is surrounded by a vast expanse of parkland. Some of the facilities in this panoramic recreational mecca include miles of shoreline, nature trails, beaches for swimming, boat ramps, lakeside cabins, modern campsites, equestrian trails and campsites, fishing piers, and pavilions. One of the smaller counties in Texas, but “big in water and land,” Delta County offers the potential for quiet family living or an idyllic retirement.
