Home of Indiana's First State Capitol, Corydon's historic buildings and sites.
This two-story federal style brick house was built in 1817. William Hendricks made the house his headquarters and home while he was governor of Indiana from 1822-1825. In 1841 Judge William A. Porter acquired the house, which remained in his family until the state secured it and opened it to the public in 1979.
Tours are part of the Corydon Capitol State Historic Site, which includes the first state capitol building.
Open Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 am to 5:oo pm.
