The Recording Department records all documents that affect real property/real estate and maintains them for public record. Documents need to be recorded in the County in which the land or any portion of land is situated.

The significance of recording a document is to give notice of the subject matter of the document to the public. Once recorded, a document becomes part of the official records of Mason County and is considered a permanent record.

We record surveys, plat maps, short plats and large lot subdivisions. (Mylar or Paper accepted)

We also administer and issue Marriage Licenses.
