Parent Catalog Number 1992-01-001
Description This series of the Stebbins Real Estate Collection is the main portion of real estate records, including over 300 boxes of address files. Materials are organized by street address.

A typical address file will include at least one of the following:

-Photograph of property
-Negative (usually Kodak Brownie format) of property
-Sales listing card, detailing the structure, lot, location, any notes on showing the property for agents, notes on sale price and date. The sales listing cards usually have a half-tone photograph of the property on the reverse.
-Newspaper clippings (classified advertisements or articles)
-Sales agent solicitation records
-Rental property information
-Vacant property information

Occasionally odd items such as a housekey have been found in the files.

The large files series sometimes contains files for addresses that are represented in this series, so it is best to check both locations.
