Perfect for history buffs

Corydon is Indiana’s first state capital and follows the development of Indiana from a territory to a state. In June of 1816, 43 delegates met in Corydon to draft the first state constitution. Much of their work was completed under the shade of a large elm tree. The trunk of the tree, now known as “Constitution Elm,” is still standing. The first state election was on Aug. 5, 1816, and Jonathan Jennings was elected governor.

Corydon Capitol Building

The square, Federal-style Capitol building in the heart of downtown Corydon serves as a memorable backdrop for events. Other notable buildings including the Governor’s Headquarters and First State Office Building, add to the historic ambiance. Corydon, a National Historic District, features shopping and restaurants, as well as one of Indiana’s Civil War battlefields.
