The Ann Arbor (Mich.) rent receipt ledger contains 40 pages of financial accounts pertaining to domestic and commercial properties leased between May 1887 and January 1892. Most entries list the amount of rent due on a weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis, and record payments in cash or (rarely) in labor or trade. Tenets frequently leased properties in the "Buchoz Block" on Detroit Street. The landlord also rented rooms in the E. W. Morgan House on the northeast corner of Huron Street and Fifth Street (now Fifth Avenue). The ledger also records land rented for a marble shop and a lumber yard, as well as lots for pasture.
