- http://www.rockfordtownshipassessor.net/ (Rockford Township Assessor)
In addition, we conducted several “drive arounds” to take photos of each property.
As one might expect, significant inconsistencies can occur between what appear to be physical addresses, actual post office addresses, addresses as recorded by the referenced assessor and addresses as represented in WINGIS. Thus, while we have taken care to be as accurate as possible, please consider the resulting work product a guide only.
Further, if a historic status is indicated it is believed to be correct but it is incumbent on the user to ascertain that status definitively.
We welcome suggestions and corrections; they will be incorporated as necessary. If we’ve somehow associated an incorrect photo with a property, please let us know. We will continue to augment and supplement with the goal of improving the quality and usability of the data. Updates are posted here as they become available.
