The Old Lake Court House

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, Noka's Café and Catering, the Maki Ballroom, professional offices, 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 138 year-old building has been partially restored to its original grandeur. There is still much to be done.

Opening Night - Friday February 16th

Don't miss it



Marion Kellum, local playwright and director/producer, will again direct a play in the Historic Court Room of the Court House on the square! His seasoned ability will again delight and impress you. The play "Talking With ..." by Jane Martin premiered in New York in 1982 and has since played around the world.”TALKING WITH…” is composed of eleven short monologues, each featuring a woman who talks about her life. And what lives they are. The play deals with the personal ordeals and inner thoughts of these unique women. Each one speaks to us as if she were speaking to a confidant. Some of the stories are very funny, some are touching and others intensely emotional, but all have a depth that allows us a sensitive insight to their personalities and characters. They are unique and diverse but somehow very familiar. While the play is entertaining and a lot of fun, you leave with a lot to think about.
Opening night festivities will begin at 6:15 featuring pre-play wine, coffee & home-made deserts, while Marion and the cast mingle with the attendees. Tickets for the performances are available at the Court House office and Brownpapertickets.com details as follows: Opening night February 16 $20; all other tickets $15. February 17,23,& 24 start at 7:00 pm and Sunday matinees February 18 & 25 start at 2:00 pm, intermission refreshments available.
