Today, the Old Lake County Courthouse in Crown Point, IN functions as a tourist attraction and houses several shops and galleries that are open to the public. In the warmer months, craft fairs and other cultural events are held around the courthouse and on the grounds of the square in downtown Crown Point. The Old Lake County Courthouse was built in 1878 and is one of the most prominent landmarks in all of Lake County. The courthouse is located in the heart of downtown Crown Point in what is known as “the square”. Locally known as The Grand Old Lady, the courthouse can be seen from miles away, whether driving on I-65 looking west or driving into Crown Point via Main St or US 231. The courthouse served as the Lake County Courthouse from the time it was built until 1974 when the county government facilities moved to a new government complex north of downtown Crown Point.
In August 2012, I took several aerial photos of Crown Point, Indiana as well as several other Northwest Indiana communities.
