On October 31, 1834, Solon Robinson and his family became the first settlers to live in what is today known as Crown Point, Indiana. Because of its location, Crown Point is known locally as the “Hub of Lake County”. Another reason many families call this area home is the abundance of travel options making it easy to get in and out of the area.
The County Seat of Lake County is one of the most populous communities in the region and is therefore home to many core businesses. Consequently, all local government offices and courts are located in the historic downtown area. It is also home to Geisen Funeral and Cremation, Burns Funeral Home & Crematory, Pruzin & Little Funeral Home,and Crown Cremation Services. Chapel Lawn Funeral Home and Memorial Gardens is also located in Crown Point. Also, Lincoln Ridge Funeral Home, Rees Funeral Home and Maplewood Memorial Cemetery also call Crown Point home.
There is also a vibrant shopping community in Crown Point. As a result, people come from miles just to shop here. The Artful Garden, On The Square Antique Emporium and Bryan’s Florist are local staples. Beacon Hill and the Historic Downtown Crown Point shops also provide locals and tourists a chance to shop from a variety of specialty stores.

On January 30, 1934, the notorious John Dillinger was captured in Tucson, Arizona. Due to a bank robbery in Chicago, which resulted in a murdered police officer, Lake County gained priority to Dillinger. Held in the Lake County Jail (pictured) in Crown Point, Indiana, Dillinger planned his fantastic escape.
While incarcerated in the Lake County Jail, Dillinger carved a gun from a wooden washboard or a bar of soap (local legend varies), and stained the fake gun with black shoe polish. The escape occurred during the early hours of March 3, 1934. The prop was soon replaced by an automatic gun which Dillinger took from a guard. Soon after, hostages were taken but later released in the get- away to nearby Illinois.
On July 23rd of that same year, Dillinger was shot and killed by FBI agents outside the Biograph Theater in Chicago.
