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. For business or for pleasure we invite you to explore Harrison County Indiana and see for yourself why our community is an ideal place to live, work and play.


SBA Disaster Loans Available to Harrison County for April Severe Storms

As the result of a Presidential Disaster Declaration in Kentucky, U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) low interest disaster loans are available to Clark, Floyd and Harrison in Indiana.

The disaster was declared for several counties in Kentucky affected by severe storms, tornadoes, flooding, landslides and mudslides on April 2-17, 2015.

Businesses and private non-profit organizations of any size may borrow up to $2 million to repair or replace disaster damaged or destroyed real estate, machinery and equipment, inventory, and other business assets. The SBA may increase a loan up to 20 percent of the total amount of disaster damage to real estate and/or leasehold improvements, as verified by SBA, to make improvements that lessen the risk of property damage by future disasters of the same kind.

For small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small businesses engaged in aquaculture and most private nonprofit organizations of all sizes, the SBA offers Economic Injury Disaster Loans to help meet working capital needs caused by the disaster. Economic Injury Disaster Loan assistance is available regardless of whether the business suffered any physical property damage.



Veterans 5K Run / Walk & Car Show

Veterans of Harrison County, Inc., (VOHC) is a non-profit organization formed to assist in the everyday needs of qualified Veterans of Harrison County, to promote the development of appropriate forums which serve the needs of Veterans, provide educational opportunities to the community, and generally augment the status of Veterans in the community.


On May 23, 2015 we will be partnering with St. Peter Catholic Church to have our first fund raiser, a 5K Run/Walk held in Elizabeth, Indiana.  Our intent is for this to be a very large fund raiser that will be the 1st of an annual event to be held every year. 


Following we will be having an All Harrison County Veteran Roll Call at the Elizabeth Community Center.  This event will be a reception for all Veterans in Harrison County and their families.  We want this to be an opportunity for Veterans to get registered with the Harrison County Veteran Service Office and to be able to sit down, network, and catch up with other Veterans.  We hope to provide a full meal for the roll call because we feel that our Veterans deserve it.


In order to make both of these events successful we will need as much support as we can get from our local community.  Most families have been touched in some way by a family member that has served or is presently serving in the United States Armed Forces.  Some gave the ultimate sacrifice. 


A donation sheet, a Volunteer sheet, a 5K participation form and a RSVP sheet, for the Roll Call, are available through this website.  If you can’t donate monetary items then please consider volunteering in some way.


All checks should be made out to Veterans of Harrison County, Inc.  Checks and forms can be mailed to or dropped off at the Veteran Service Office, 245 Atwood St., Suite 102, Corydon, Indiana 47112, Attn: VSO


Your support and generous donation are greatly appreciated.
