The Lake County Courthouse Building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. As described in the application submitted to the National Register: "The building is historically significant for its role as the symbolic and functional seat of government for Lake County. Since the building's construction, it has housed virtually all of the county's administrative, operational, and judicial functions, while simultaneously serving as the official repository for county records. The courthouse is the most important single physical element in the historic and contemporary governance of Lake County, and is an important local visual reminder of the importance of county government." All major building projects seek to preserve and protect the historical integrity of our County Courthouse.
