A Visit to O'Bannon Woods State Park and Corydon Indiana
O’Bannon Woods State Park and the area surrounding it abounds in Indiana history. The park includes a pioneer homesteading farm complete with a functioning hay press barn. A Visit to O'Bannon Woods State Park and Corydon Indiana includes information about nearby historic Corydon, Indiana, the state’s first state capital. Corydon is also the site of the only Civil War battle fought in the state as Corydon’s defenders tried to stave off Morgan’s Raiders as they entered the state.
Several cave systems in the area will interest spelunkers. Indiana Cavern, Squire Boone Cavern, Wyandotte and Marengo Caves are all nearby and make fascinating destinations. Squire Boone, Daniel Boone’s brother, made his home in the Mauckport area during the last years of his life.
