The Corydon Capitol commemorates the history of Indiana’s first state capital and the development of Indiana from the territorial period through statehood. Vincennes, the first territorial capital, was left in an isolated position when the Illinois Territory was separated from the Indiana Territory in 1809. In May of 1813, the capital was moved to Corydon because of its central location.

  • Something not a lot of people seem to know about this Hidden Gem, is that it is the first capital of the state of Indiana. This is where the original Crossroads begin in America. This was the gateway to it all. If you really want to see where it all began, you must start here. This place is truly a gem and if you miss it in your lifetime, you're missing quite a bit.
  • Not an overwhelming experience but an important part of our state's history
  • Corydon was the first established state capital of Indiana! Having grown up here I do take the site for granted, but it is a very nice peace of our states past!
  • Corydon was the capital city. Cool history
