The Recorder of Deeds Office is responsible for recording, archiving and retrieving any document submitted to be recorded.
We welcome the public to drop by at any time to review our documents, which date back to 1844, and to ask any of our friendly staff members for help.
In addition to deeds and mortgages, the staff records plats of subdivision, ordinances and annexations, liens and releases, articles of incorporation, Uniform Commercial Code filings, military service discharge papers and other various document types that have been submitted to become public record.
