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. Harrison County provides residents with a progressive business community, active social, civic and religious organizations and a friendly small town feel.

Harrison County's rural location is just 25 minutes from the city center of Louisville, Kentucky, the nation's 16th largest city. The outstanding location and growing economy has made Harrison County one of the Indiana's fastest growing counties in recent years.

Public Service Message - Passport Scam

The Clerk's Office has been made aware of another online Passport scam. This one claims to, for a fee, assist the applicant in completing the application. In the process applicants are giving the scammers their name, address, date of birth and social security numbers! That is all that the scammer needs to steal the applicant’s identity.

Please only visit the U.S. Dept. of State's Passport website at There is NO FEE for an application or way to submit your application online. If applying for a passport for the 1st time you must visit an acceptance agent facility like the Harrison County Clerk's office to submit your completed application. If you are on a website that requires a fee for a Passport application it is a scam.

If you are eligible to renew your Passport you may MAIL your application, form DS-82, without the assistance of an acceptance agent.
