These maps are a visual inventory of the recorded legal documents which define property ownership in our county. The map does not take the place of any of these legal documents, and does not determine ownership rights. The precise location of property boundaries on the ground must be determined by a land surveyor registered to practice in the State of Illinois. These maps are presented for public use on an as-is basis, with no guarantee of accuracy or completeness.
