Deed Research
951-963 North Fifth Street

 

The following section includes the chronology of the grantors and grantees of the site:

East Side of Fifth Street
(between George and Poplar Streets)
Ward 16

Note: Over the course of a building's existence, its address may change several times
since street names or numbering have changed at various times in the past.

The scope of our research was to find specific names relating to each of the seven properties.
Further investigation into other documents such as deeds is necessary to ascertain specific dates of construction
and demolition for both wooden and masonry structures. The names obtained from the transfer sheets informed us that
these structures were tenements. After checking city directories (see "City Directories"), owners of each property
were found to live and work at different addresses than seen in this Taylor sketch.
