Ozark Abstract & Title was founded in 1887 by Mr James F Adams. Mr Adams started the business because he saw a need for detailed land records for Christian County. What Mr Adams started is still being carried on today as Ozark Abstract & Title is the oldest business in Christian County. Over the years the scope of work has expanded but the passion for Christian County that started in 1887 carries on.
Our work is done in a timely, accurate and cost effective manner and we strive to pass this along to our customers. Our staff has deep roots in Ozark and we pride ourselves in doing all we can to serve our community and give back in any way we can.
