I believe that the public records kept have the general description of your lot that include a tax map, distinguishing the property lines. If you want to find out exact locations of your property lines you would have to have a survey performed by a certified surveyor. While this can be expensive, it can help you settle any property disputes or may be needed if you plan on submitting plans for permits to add on to your residence. If you'd like, I could help you with the public record search, to give you a better idea as to where your property lines exist in comparison to neighboring lots.
