The Crown Point Historic Preservation Commission was entrusted by ordinance of the Crown Point Common Council in 1983, with the responsibility of surveying, identifying, planning for and establishing Historic Districts within the City of Crown Point. The purpose of establishing Historic Districts is to safeguard the heritage of the City by preserving areas, which reflect elements of cultural, social, spiritual, economic, political, engineering and architectural history. It is an attempt to help stabilize and improve property values, foster civic beauty and community pride, and to strengthen the local economy. In addition, Historic Districts can be promoted for the education, pleasure, and welfare of the citizens of Crown Point, the state of Indiana, and the United States.

All Applications and Packets can be picked up at the Planning Office: 705 Industrial Blvd.
