HISTORY

In 2006, the Monmouth County Office of Records Management (ORM) completed the scanning of hundreds of tax plat maps dating from 1906 through the 1990s which had been stored in the Monmouth County Tax Office in the Hall of Records. The maps were made available on the County’s Open Public Records Search website for online research.

Once the scanning project was completed there was no need to continue to store the originals, and the maps were scheduled for destruction.

The Monmouth County ORM contacted the Monmouth County Archives to see whether the Archives would be interested in keeping the over 200 original, large tax plat map books for research purposes at the Archives. Due to space restrictions in the Archives, it was decided to take a sampling of the 200 + volumes based on the earliest dates first; and secondly by maps prior to the 1980s.
