The Old Courthouse has been, since its erection in 1878, a landmark in Lake County, Indiana. Construction of the central portion, including the clock tower, began with 500,000 hand-kilned bricks from the Henry Wise Brickyard in Crown Point, combining several aspects of Romanesque and Georgian styles of architecture. North and south wings were added to the original structure in 1907 and 1928.

The Old Lake County Courthouse was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
