The Town of Corydon, with a population of 3,122 residents, is located in Harrison County Indiana. Corydon was the first state capitol 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.
The words to describe Corydon are quaint, homey, comfortable, clean, pretty, and safe. The future holds the vision of what the citizens of the town want to represent. It is shaping into a vibrant downtown that is filled with activity most of the time. There are new investors opening businesses and restaurants to show their confidence in our Town’s future.
People travel from miles around to visit our Extravaganza, our wine walks, our unique festivals, and just to see historic sites and shop for antiques. Hayswood Theatre has a facelift and energy in shows that are selling out.
We are creating attractions for families to move here, and school enrollment is increasing. Children are helping to shape our future. The fourth graders painted the tiles in Bicentennial Park, and if you look at each one you will see the hopes and dreams of these children.
History is our fiber, landscape is our gift, and people are the inspiration of our community.
