In 1816, the County Recorder became the first office created by the Constitution of the State of Indiana. It is the primary duty of the County Recorder to record instruments submitted for recording and maintain those records for perpetuity. Indiana recorders have been recording and maintaining documents for over 200 years! Documents recorded in the Recorder's Office include, but are not limited to, deeds, mortgages, releases, assignments, liens, and Military Discharges(DD214). Records are available to the public (excluding Military Discharges) by photocopies, microfilm, digital images, or our books.
