In 1910, the Delton region was annexed by Edmonton, at a period when the city was quickly expanding and subdividing land for development. Delton was nearly a mile from the next developed subdivision when it was annexed, and it was immediately south of the old Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. Before WWI, the majority of Delton was arranged into a grid layout of streets. However, the majority of progress took place after WWII.
The neighbourhood's commercial growth is concentrated along 97th Street. Delton is bordered on the west and north by major highways (Yellowhead Trail to the north and 97th Street to the west), but its interior streets are rather quiet, and the bulk of the dwellings are single-family homes. Delton Park is located in the neighbourhood's northeast corner.
Both the subdivision and the neighbourhood, as well as the adjoining Grierson Estates, were named after Edward Delegare "Del" Grierson. Grierson came to Edmonton in the 1890s to work for the Canadian Pacific Railway, and later bought property on Jasper Avenue, including the old Alberta Hotel (no longer in existence). Grierson was a member of the Edmonton City Council in the early 1900s.
