This collection consists mainly of abstracts of title describing the history of ownership to facilitate real estate transactions. These abstracts were completed by outside companies for the Almira State Bank. The collection also contains a small amount of other real estate transaction documents, notably materials related to the sale of land facilitated by the Almira State Bank for the Columbia Basin Project.
