Corydon is a cute little town. It was only the state capitol for a few short years so the historic area is very small. But it was worth the $7 ticket to see and hear about it. The tiny visitor center has clean public restrooms....More

We took guided tour today. Im not from area; but this was an excellent 45 min tour of past/present history of state of Indiana. The tour was $6 (per person) not strenuous at all. Anyone could do this tour.
