Towering above the square in downtown Crown Point, Indiana, the Lake County Courthouse is still the focal point of this historical area. Today, instead of the Romanesque and Georgian style building being the center of the county government, the “Grand Old Lady” houses shops, the Maki Ballroom, professional offices including photography and architecture, Chamber of Commerce, City Court, and the Lake County Historical Society Museum. Noted by architects as one of the finest architectural expressions in Indiana, the interior as well as the exterior of this 125 year-old building has been faithfully restored to its original grandeur.
