Crown Point

Incorporated in 1868, Crown Point is the county seat of Lake County. This beautiful city not only has a wealth of fascinating history, it also has an abundance of dining, entertainment, and recreational options.

Crown Point features a large variety of distinctive restaurants and two breweries. Crown Brewing serves up award-winning craft beer that you can enjoy with casual fare from the adjoining Carriage Court Pizza. Off Square Brewing features a wide range of dining options including pizzas, wings, short rib poutine, gyro-esque Greek lamb burgers and more. Both are featured on the South Shore Brewery Trail.  

The square offers many unique shops like Toys in the Attic and The Artful Garden. The historic courthouse boasts many interesting shops as well as the Lake County Historical Society Museum. The "Grand Old Lady," as it's known, was erected in 1878. It became known as the "Marriage Mill" since Crown Point required no waiting period for marriage licenses. Many notable people, including Rudolph Valentino and Cassius Clay (Mohammed Ali) were married there.
