Entry Description
INDIANAPOLIS (March 20, 2013) – Indiana Governor Mike Pence was presented with a framed copy of the first page of the current Indiana Constitution Tuesday in his Statehouse office. Jim Corridan, Director & State Archivist of the Indiana Commission on Public Records, presented the Constitution, which is in the care of the Indiana State Archives. Corridan also presented a complete, bound copy of the original version of the 1851 document.

The Indiana State Archives maintains the original copies of both State Constitutions, from 1816 and 1851, as well as the manuscript copy of the journal of the 1815 constitutional convention. The constitutions are currently on display in the Statehouse Rotunda, and will remain throughout the legislative session. The founding documents are housed in the Capitol in a case made from the Constitutional Elm, the tree under which the 1816 Constitution was drafted.

A digital copy of the 1851 Indiana Constitution is available at
