Department News

We are pleased to announce that the OHRAB grant project is nearing completion, and is scheduled to be fully complete at the end of 2019. The grant was awarded to the Licking County Records & Archives Department in the summer of 2019 to assist with the physical preservation of records previously stored in the Courthouse attic. The grant has allowed the department to clean many historic county records from the Auditor’s, Treasurer’s and Clerk of Courts Offices. These records have been catalogued and are now able to be viewed at the Licking County Records & Archives Center. A large portion of the records include tax records that list property owners and the assessed value on their homes, lands, and various possessions (such as horses and carriages!), as well as the taxes they paid to the County Treasury. Also included are Court Dockets that have entries for individuals who appeared in court for a variety of matters. Overall, the records impacted by the grant span over 150 years, with the oldest record dating back to 1834.
