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.
