My friends Trish and Pete have been thinking about home-ownership lately.

This made me ponder my own abode, and went surfing around. My little village here has nicely digitized quite a bit of their real-estate records, and made them easily searchable. I was able to come up with the original plat describing my street and lot, as envisioned in 1914.

I also came up with the deed, and description of the property. It almost reads like an obituary. Or a soap-opera. Picture 11.png

I think that's awesome. Alas, the "park" denoted on the original plat a few doors down seems to have been annexed by a neighbor.
