Old Courthouse Tower Damaged By Storms
June 17, 2013 – The storm that battered Crown Point on Wednesday took a direct hit at the historic Lake Court House. The force of the 100-mile-per-hour winds blew out windows in the Bell Tower, damaged sections of the clay tile roof, uprooted signs and downed tree limbs. Costs to repair the damage is estimated in the tens of thousands of dollars.
Lake Court House Foundation president Marty Wheeler is appealing to the community for help. She says the Lake Court House Foundation Board has been hard at work drumming up support and donations for necessary repairs for the Court House and to create an endowment that would help when unexpected crises – such as storms – cause damage.
