Lane County Records Inventory

Land Subdivision Records

1856-[ongoing]

Series documents the subdividing and partitioning of land within the county. Records include survey notes, correspondence, photographs, satisfaction of agreements, maps of subdivided and partitioned land, and contracts and permits. Information includes subdivision names; lot, street, and alley dimensions; and township, range, and section numbers of land to be subdivided or partitioned.

Early Lane County subdivision plats are recorded in the Deed Record (Deeds and Indexes). The "Surveyor's Images & Documents Online" searchable database includes images of plats and notes related to government corners, county road maps, donation land claims, master road files, reestablishment records, road naming files, subdivisions, and vertical control dating from circa 1851 to the present. Partition plats are stored with filed land surveys in the Surveyor's Map Room. Deeds, mortgages, subdivisions, mining claims, military discharges, and other records created since circa 1972 are searchable on public access computers available in the Deeds and Records Research Library.
