Old Sheriff's House Crown Point Indiana
Old Sheriff's House and Lake County jail in Crown Point Indiana with a Ford Model A antique car parked in front. In 1934 John Dillinger escaped from the Lake County jail in this building. In 2008 Universal Studios filmed parts of the movie Public Enemies with Johnny Depp. The jail is open to the public for tours and goes past Dillinger's cell and also where filming was done. Crown Point is located in Northwest Indiana with a population of over 37,000. Crown Point and Lake County are about 50 miles from Chicago and are considered part of the "Chicagoland" area. Crown Point has a traditional small town America feel with a main street consisting of the old Lake County Courthouse surrounded by numerous small businesses, known as "the square", including a theater, ice cream shop, antique stores, and restaurants.
