The front of the courthouse coming from the south is very impressive and it is one of the most recognized county courthouses in West Michigan.

Historic Site-
Lake County - "This county was originally set off in 1840 and first named Aishcum after a well-known Potawatomi chief. In 1843 the name was changed to Lake. For three decades it was attached to neighboring counties until 1871 when settlement was sufficient to warrant organization. Baldwin, the county seat, was settled in 1872. The county's forests helped make Michigan a leading lumbering state. Farming and the tourist industry are the chief activities. Wildlife is abundant." Michigan Historic Site
Linda L. Bair - "In memory of Linda L. Bair, Lake County Commissioner, 5 1/2 years"
Robert O Bair - "In memory of Robert O. Bair, Lake County Commissioner January 1993 to June 1997"
