The Office of the County Recorder was created by the First Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Iowa in 1839. Your County Recorder continues to maintain official records of documents affecting real estate in order to protect innocent third parties in real estate transactions.

The County Recorder's office is at the hub of the courthouse function to serve you. A significant portion of duties performed by other county officials is dependent on the work performed by your County Recorder.

Iowa's County Recorders are proud of their tradition and looking forward to the future.

Recording fees collected for the county provide a form of property tax relief.
