Welcome to Harrison County Indiana!

Harrison County has a wonderfully rich history in the emergence of Indiana as our 19th state and the establishment of Corydon as Indiana's first state capital. Just as the early representatives met under the Constitution Elm in Corydon to draft Indiana's first Constitution, the current members of Harrison County government are working hard to represent the needs and will of the people of Harrison County Indiana.
