County Property Assessment
Search by address, owner, or parcel number.
House number ranges will bring back a range to select from, which may be more effective than entering a specific address.
Some pages allow viewing in GIS, or recent property photos. By clicking the "Load Building Information on This Page" at the bottom, you may be able to learn a built date and other information.
Use caution with the built date of older homes. Assessor information (built date) sometimes corresponds only with when taxes began being paid to the current municipality. Additionally, early records may have been lost or destroyed and an approximation was made on the date.
County Register of Deeds
In most instances you will need to visit the Register of Deeds office, and plan on an hour or more of searching time, to obtain a Chain of Title and other information. Tracing the history of your property through the Register not only will show when the Deed was created, but will provide additional information about owners and the land.
Establishing when your building was constructed anchors research in a finite time frame, allowing for more precise and in-depth inquiry into appropriate resources. Use caution with the built date of older homes.
