The County Clerk’s Office, established under the Constitution of New Jersey, maintains copies of all documents affecting real property since its incorporation in 1838. The Records Room is open to any interested citizen, attorney, title searcher, or historian for their research, reference, or study. The records are available for public inspection between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM Monday through Friday. Although by law, the staff cannot conduct a title search, they will familiarize the public with the computerized recording and indexing system. In addition, maps of Mercer County’s 13 municipalities are on file along with minor and major subdivisions within the County. Paper copies may be obtained for a fee by contacting the Indexing Section at 609-989-6476.
