Delano is a ghost town located in northeastern Elko County, Nevada, about 36 miles north of Montello. Delano was the center of a small gold-mining district that saw production from the 1870s to the 1960s. The post office closed in 1927.

The remaining buildings at Delano were destroyed by a wildfire in the 1990s, and only archaeological remains survive at the site today.
