Crown Point, Indiana is the home of one of the most haunted locations in the Midwest. The Old Sheriff’s House and Jail is a late 19th century structures that housed infamous inmates, many of whom have never left! Paranormal enthusiasts and investigators travel to Lake County, Indiana from all over the world to hear the stories and learn the truth from the spirits that still lurk in the shadows.

Originally constructed in 1882, the building underwent several renovations. In 1928 the Old Lake County Jail was thought to be one of the finest in Indiana with over 150 cells, maximum security accommodations and all the fortified and necessary aspects required for a law enforcement institution. It also gained the reputation of being escape-proof until its most famous prisoner dispelled that belief in March of 1934.
