Swansea Area Deed Search

Sowams Heritage Area project team member Dave Weed spent a morning at the Bristol County Registry of Deeds in Taunton searching for records regarding the land on Sachem’s Knoll and around King’s Rock on Market Street at the Warren-Swansea border. As the area was entirely in Swansea in the late 17th Century, he was able to search records of all properties from 1686 through 1785 in the records on file at the Registry. The search will be useful in preparing an application for a National Historic Site designation at some time in the future.
