Corydon Capitol State Historic Site is located in Harrison County in southern Indiana. Part of the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites, Corydon became the Indiana Territory capitol in 1813 and Indiana’s first state capital in 1816. From the square, Federal-style limestone capitol to the brick Governor’s headquarters, Corydon is where visitors can discover how the Indiana Territory developed into the great Hoosier state it became.
