Spend some time with one of the library’s newest resources! The City’s Brown Books contain thousands of subdivision records of individual construction permits for homes and some businesses across several decades. In these pages, you can find interesting and helpful information about the original structure. Data includes notations about square footage, construction date, original building price, along with details about the interior of the building and more. Over 98 percent of all documents include a photograph of the original structure.
To see if your address is in this compilation of records, enter the online database. Then, type in the address of a building you are interested in.
If you would like an 11x17 print of the image, email University Park Public Library at email@example.com. Please include your name and the address that you’re interested in viewing. There is a charge of $1.50 per page to print from the Brown Books. Stop by the library's front desk to submit payment and then you will receive your images!
