Perry County Indiana Heritage Project


c. 1819


In 1819, the Perry County Seat was moved to centrally located Rome, a prominent river port at the time.  This two-story brick

building, echoing the design of the first Indiana Capitol building at Corydon, was built in the town's central square to house the

county court house.  By 1859 Perry County's boundaries had changed and the county seat was then moved to Cannelton.  The 

building has since housed a variety of churches, a private school, and the public school until 1966.  As of 2004 it was serving as

the Rome Community Center.
