Check out Crown Point homes to find a town with a fascinating history and lots to do. It is perhaps most famous by the escape of gangster John Dillinger in 1934. Since that time, Crown Point has mellowed out and become respectable. The city is the seat of Lake County and offers many amenities to residents. Downtown Crown Point real estate is the most interesting architecturally and historically. The beautiful, classic storefronts invite shoppers to stroll, take their time to window shop, and go inside to meet the business owners of the city. It’s a reminder that the friendly service of yesteryear still exists, at least in some places. Anyone interested in learning more about the John Dillinger case should visit the Sheriff’s House, where he was imprisoned. The Lake County Criminal Court Building also houses a number of interesting artifacts on the case. Don’t miss the People’s Bank Building, now the Northern Indiana Arts Association, or the Antique Mall, once Cheshire Hall. Many famous people gave lectures here, including Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony.
Crown Point homes also offer access to excellent public schools. The city’s schools turn in top performances on standardized testing.
