The Delaware originally lived in what is now New Jersey, the lower Hudson Valley, New York Harbor, and along the Delaware River. With the arrival of settlers from Europe, the Delaware were eventually pushed westward.

Archives local history files contain information on the Delaware that once inhabited Muncie, including the last of the Munsee tribe to inhabit the county, Jim Musco.
