Notable Land Records from Kingston

Back to the LHR Online
The Plymouth Registry of Deeds, the oldest land registry in the country with documents dating back to the original Plymouth Colony, has highlighted a number of interesting properties around the county in their exhibit "Notable Land Records." Each entry has a brief description and a deed, plan or other document recorded by the Registry. All of the properties in the collection can be viewed online, and a rotating selection hang in the Registry entryway. The Local History Room submitted a number of Kingston properties, with more to come.
