Parcel and Aerial Photos

Contra Costa County has an online site that has parcel information as well as the ability to overlay aerial photos of the area. The resolution is pretty amazing and it clearly shows cars and bushes.

Subdivision History

Don't miss this section. Lots of interesting information about the area we live in today and a chronology of land occupation and ownership.

Property Ownership History

The County Recorder office maintains the public record of all deeds and other property related information. Information, folklore, or anything related to the neighborhood that owners want to share is kept here.
