History of Delle, Utah
Taken from the Utah Place Names. (Links Added)

DELLE

Delle is ten miles east of Low and sixty-five miles west of Salt Lake City near I-80. It was established in 1880 as a maintenance camp and dispatch center for the Western Pacific Railroad where it crossed the Great Salt Lake Desert. Today it is a gas station, cafe, and siding only. An early name was Dalles Spring but this was shortened to Delle by railroad personnel for telegraphic efficiency. "Dalles" is French and refers to water.
