Century houses plaques are available to Ridley Park homes and structures that have reached the ripe old age of 100.
If you are looking for a special gift or tribute to acknowledge that milestone—here’s your opportunity.
Of all the questions we receive from residents, discovering the age and history of their home is #1. The easiest way to research the age is to go online to the county’s website: www.delcopa.gov/publicaccess/index.html and select the “Real Estate Tax System” tab, or log in as a guest on the "Recorder of Deeds" page. You can search by address to find information on your house.
If you have a few hours, you can visit the Government Center, Recorder of Deeds dept and search backwards to the very first deed. You’ll be surprised at all you can learn.
The cost of the 6” x 6 “ bronze plaque is $250. Turn around time will vary depending on when it is ordered.
For an additional fee of $25, the Historical Society will research the history of your home for you.
Please mail a check with the application form and information about your house to us at
