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 Assessors office may provide
clues if there is a sudden jump in tax value of a piece of
property. Another source is the City Directory.
