Eureka County Recorder

     The Eureka County Recorder's office is responsible for managing the official public property records. The purpose in official public land records is to facilitate the research necessary to determine clear property title or the lack thereof. The management of these records are critical to the success of our economy. Our office has land transaction records dating back to 1863, prior to statehood.

In addition to land records, we also are a repository for mineral, water, and grazing rights, mining locations, maps, leases, liens, UCC's, contracts, power of attorney, etc. The office also has a complete set of the Eureka Sentinel newspaper since 1871, as well as other Eureka newspapers from the 1800's. Many researchers use our records, other documents and newspapers to assist in genealogy.

We are dedicated to preserving and protecting the official records, as they must be kept forever. To help protect the volume of information, duplicate records, via microfilm and/or digital, are kept off-site in a secure facility.

The public may access the records by visiting our office or some of the records are available on our website.

Take a step back in time and read about the events from Eureka's history. We are providing the historical newspapers online. The dates range from 1871 to 2017. These newspapers include Eureka Daily Republican (1878), Silver Plume (1877), Republican Press (1884-1885), Ruby Hill Mining News (1881), Eureka Daily Sentinel (1871-1887), and Eureka Sentinel (1888-2017). There are large date gaps. More issues will be provided, as we progress in converting microfilm to digital images. As you review the issues, please keep in mind that some issues are over 140 years old. Some images are not as clear as we would like but are the best we can obtain from the microfilm. The clarity of the images will vary depending on your monitor resolution and may be better if you print the issue.
