Recorder's Office

The County Recorder was the first office created by the Constitution of the State of Indiana in 1816. The Recorder is elected to a four-year term, with a two term limitation. It is the primary duty of the County Recorder to record instruments submitted for recording and maintain those records for perpetuity.

Office hours are 8:00 am to 4:00pm.
Public Search Hours are 8:00 am through 4:00 pm.

The Recorder's Staff WILL NOT search public records or give any legal opinions. If you know the recording information, you may request a copy from our office. Otherwise, you may come in and use one of our public access computers.
