Lake County Fairgrounds
The Lake County Fairgrounds of Crown Point, Indiana have been the proud site for the Lake
County Fair. In early August, as it has for many years, the fairgrounds welcome thousands
of visitors. The fairgrounds provide an attractive setting: historic brick exhibition
buildings (see photo), tree covered hills, rambling walking paths, Lake Countys only
covered bridge (see photo on this page), and a historic grandstand near the swimming area.
The Lake County FairAs Indianas largest county fair, the
Lake County Fair proudly hosts 4-H displays, agricultural showcases, entertainment events,
food and craft booths, and a wealth of other summertime enjoyments.

The Old Covered Bridge (1878)
Lake Countys Only Covered Bridge
The historic covered bridge is displayed so
fittingly in the heavily wooded Lake County Fairgrounds, one would think it was built just
for that spot. Though now nestled in an eye-pleasing setting and used to span a gully, the
covered bridge was moved in 1933 from Rush County (in southern Indiana). Originally
built in 1878, the covered bridge continues to please those who cross it.
