Welcome to the Barnstable County Registry of Deeds
Barnstable County was founded in 1685 and encompasses the land and the 15 towns that make up what is popularly known as Cape Cod. The Barnstable County Registry of Deeds contains the over three centuries of real property ownership history for Cape Cod.
In Massachusetts, Registries of Deeds deal only with title to real property. Other aspects of property ownership, such as building type/size, property taxes, zoning, etc. fall under the jurisdiction of the municipality where the property is located.
