Welcome to the Office of the Recorder

County Recorders are an integral part of property ownership. The foundation of what was to become the Recorder's office was laid in 1215 A.D. with the signing of the Magna Carta which provided for state protection of land ownership. The Kankakee County Recorder's office retain records dating back to the founding of the county in 1853.
