Corydon, Indiana Historic Sites Master Plan and Phase 1
Corydon hosts hundreds of visitors every year as the first state capital of Indiana. And with all of those visitors it’s necessary to have a well-connected, accessible town center. Wayfinding elements, visitor and school bus parking and pedestrian and traffic pattern assessment were all components of a master plan study prepared in 2010 for this historically significant area. The project addressed future improvements to the First State Capitol Building and Square, the First Governor’s Residence, First State Office Building and the Constitution Elm Memorial. Landstory’s process included site assessment and analysis, program definition, concept development and implementation strategies.
Phase I Implementation
In 2014, funding became a reality. The Landstory team worked closely with the newly formed Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites to identify implementation priorities. Initial improvements included those to Indiana’s first courthouse and surrounding historic town square…all in time for the state bicentennial celebration in 2016.
