Delta Airlines Beginnings
Scott Airport - Tallulah, Louisiana

Home of Delta Airlines?  Delta Airlines jet - Scott Airport at Tallulah the flying service that evolved into Delta AirlinesFolks around here claim that Delta Airlines got its early beginnings as the home of an agricultural experiment station which first used airplanes to control cotton pests.  

Built in the late 1920's by Standard Oil Company, the building housed a US Experimental Station in the early 20's that began flying mail for the US Post Office, and soon started a flying service which evolved into Delta Airlines.

Madison Parish considers itself the home of Delta Airlines, and the original airport building, Scott's Field, still stands near Tallulah, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings.
