Town of Corydon steps back in time for Capital Day
CORYDON, Ind. (WDRB) -- What's old was new again in Indiana on Saturday.
Organizers of the Corydon Capital Day transformed Main Street into an old village, reminiscent of what the town may have looked like when it served as the capitol of Indiana.
Visitors stepped back in time for a rare look at life in the 19th Century.
Reenactors, vendors and entertainers were on hand to demonstrate various craftsmanship and trades, including wood working, pottery and weaving.
"It's just fun to see the different old time arts, and there is people continuing to do it," said Danny Gaither, who has been weaving for 40 years. "And hopefully will inspire somebody else to learn this too and continue it someday."
Visitors also got to take walking tours and carriage rides around the historic downtown.
