Hinsdale Combined Court

Lake City was the location of the trial of that infamous cannibal, Alfred Packer. The historical original sentencing documents are available for view at the courthouse. These include the statement of the sentencing judge that Mr. Packer is sentenced to hang by the neck until he is, “dead, dead, dead.” The community of Lake City is surrounded by high mountain peaks and beautiful pristine lakes and streams. It is worth a trip to be surrounded by such beauty.

The court has two permanent staff members. A County Judge and the Clerk of Court.   A district judge and other 7th JD Court or Probation Staff Travel to Hinsdale county to provide services.  Due to caseload volume the Combined Court is only open on Fridays from 8:30 am – 1:30 pm.
