Polk County, Latest Questions and Answers
Q: Who was arrested at 211 canova st. In auburndale
by Manda

Q: who owns 602 hampton street
by law

Q: I'm looking for historical information on a particular property, can you help me? Lakeland Florida
by jamie
A:There are historical information in public records, but it may not be the best approach. Generally, historical information does not require official public record requests. Even some records that were once not considered public are opened to the public over time. The records sought from public record websites are probably not as helpful as the sites focusing on historical information. Much of it may be in print at the city’s local library or county resources.
