The Central and East Central Indiana Tract Books digital collection includes records of land sales in Delaware County from 1811-1876. These records document the amount of acreage purchased, who purchased the land, the former residence of the purchaser, and the date the land was sold.
Tract books are arranged by the legal description of the land: by township, range, and section. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) retains original land records and patents for the state of Indiana.
