Description This series of the Stebbins Real Estate Collection is the second largest portion of the materials, consisting of 27 boxes of address files. Materials are organized by street address.

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

-Sales listing sheet, detailing the structure, lot, location, any notes on showing the property for agents, notes on sale price and date.
-Correspondence with seller or others
-Sketch of neighborhood/plat section, or sketch of property
-Newspaper clippings (classified advertisements or articles)
-Sales agent solicitation records
-Rental property information
-Vacant property information

Photographs and negatives are rarely found in this series.

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