 Research Papers


Today is:

420 West 28th Street, Kearney, Nebraska

The question was asked, “When was the house at this address constructed?”
The Register of Deeds office will have a record of the ownership of property but no record of construction of buildings on it. The County Assessor’s office may provide clues if there is a sudden jump in tax value of a piece of property. Another source is the City Directory.
