About this collection

Indiana University Mauer School of Law Library and Indiana State Library

 

Indiana's first constitution was ratified on June 10, 1816, and later that year on August 5, the first General Assembly was elected.  Convening in a three-room statehouse located in Corydon, it consisted of ten senators and twenty-nine representatives.  The state government relocated to Indianapolis in December 1824, and was housed in the Marion County Courthouse. 

 

The Indiana Historical Legislative Documents Collection contains historical materials produced by the Indiana General Assembly from their first meeting to the present.  In order to preserve these historical materials and make them easier for the general public to access and study, digitized copies are made available in this collection.
