Question: What is the best method to locate the name of the owner of a rental property in Brockton, Massachusetts in 1908?
Answer: I would suggest examining the microfiche of Brockton City Directories ca. 1907-1910 at NEHGS. These would be the best option for determining a resident, regardless if they were the property owner. We do have in house access to Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps however this will only indicate the owner of the property.
