DescriptionThe capitol building, built between 1814 and 1816, is a 40-foot square made of local limestone and consists of three rooms. It was used as the State Capitol from 1816 to 1825, at which time the capitol moved to Indianapolis. The Governor's Headquarters was build in 1817 of locally fired brick and was used as the residence and offices of the second governor, William Hendricks from 1822 to 1824. The First State Office building, built in 1817, was home to Indiana's first state auditor and treasurer. It is said that the state's money was kept in the cellar. Under the shade of a giant elm tree, later called the Constitution Elm, 43 delegates drafted the state's first constitution. The giant tree died in 1925, however, a large portion of the trunk is preserved today and is a memorial to our early history. Open Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Closed Mondays and on some holidays. Winter hours vary. Admission Fee
