The Town of Corydon, with a population of 3,122 residents, is located in Harrison County Indiana. Corydon was the first state capital until the legislature made a move to its current location of Indianapolis in 1825. Corydon and Harrison County are rich in history, as evidenced by the many historic properties, caves, and landmarks easily found within this small area.
In 2016, Corydon was designated a winner in the Indiana Stellar competition program. The leadership in Corydon is currently using this opportunity to bring vitality and life to this small town, moving it into the future, while still striving to maintain the rich, historic past and beloved hometown ambiance.
Corydon is the type of community that many people long to call home. Some families have been in the area for generations, while others like mine have found it a little later in life and can’t imagine wanting to live anywhere else. Regardless of how deep your roots are, we can all find the deep sense of community that a town like ours cultivates.
Corydon’s history is important, but it is not just our history that makes it feel like you have stepped back to a simpler time. We have thriving small businesses, summer festivals and activities on the square, parades, and access to outdoor treasures like the Indian Creek Trail where fathers take their children out to see if they can land a fish or two. Neighbors help neighbors with school supply drives and events like the Repair Affair, which has helped fix hundreds of elderly people’s homes over the years. The schools are highly rated and send students to top colleges every year. The arts are also a big part of our community with businesses and events like Hayswood Theater, Zimmerman Art Glass, the Farmers Market, concerts on the square, and festivals that provide local artists platforms for their work.
Whether you are just passing through for a visit, or you are one of the lucky folks who call Corydon your home, we hope you can find things here that capture your imagination, help you learn something new, and put a smile on your face.
