Have you ever visited the beautiful La Porte County Court House? Have you taken note of the interior features of the structure? We see the outside of this building regularly in passing but rarely have we the need to visit and note the beauty inside.
The Inside Story of the La Porte County Court House will be presented at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, 11 January 2014 in the meeting room of the La Porte County Historical Society Museum by Fern Eddy Schultz, La Porte County Historian. Among the notable historical items of interest are the stained glass windows, the skylight and much more. This is an opportunity to discover the many historically significant items within this building that are not ordinarily seen by the visitor.
The program is free; however, regular museum admission fees will apply. The court house is included in the Downtown La Porte Historic District on the National Register of Historical Places and was so designated September 15, 1983.
The La Porte County Historical Society Museum is located at 2405 Indiana Avenue in La Porte, and is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 – 4:30. Call ahead for admission prices at 219-324-6767, or visit our website at www.laportecountyhistory.org for more information. The facility is accessible to those with disabilities.
