We live in Louisville and want to downsize when we retire. We want to move to a small town and Corydon might fit the bill. The only problem is we worry about the drug culture that plagues so many small towns. Does Corydon have a big drug problem?

Coydon has a solid community feel with a good many people that care about their town. A good number of people also live there and commute to jobs in Louisville region so that keeps the town from getting to stagnant. The bigger issues in terms of smaller towns with more significant issues would be up by Scottsburg, Austin, or Salem.

Agreed, worst problems are right in Austin and Scottsburg and to a lesser extent in Salem, Pekin, and Charlestown. There are a few drug users everywhere, I doubt Corydon is any worse than average. I really like Georgetown, Lanesville, and Corydon and in the long run might even consider moving out that way. I'm in the process of moving from East Louisville to New Albany right now and wouldn't mind being in a quaint smaller town.

Corydon is a nice place with a historic small downtown area and a handful of chain and big box places near the interstate. There are more than enough people making/abusing drugs in the area, but it's not something that would affect a normal citizen by and large on a daily basis. I would not say there is a 'drug culture' there in the same way that there is in Austin and other places. As others have said, Corydon still has several people that care about their town and there is a good community feel. There are also some nice homes in the area, some walking trails around town being worked on, and a few nice parks. Haywood nature preserve is great. I go there from time to time and enjoy it quite a bit.

It's a scenic area with some good outdoor opportunities and only about 25 minutes or so from all the restaurants and events that happen in downtown New Alabany, or 30-35 minutes to downtown Louisville assuming lighter traffic. Also an easy drive to several wineries and some other sights in the area. Definitely worth looking into if you're looking to downsize in a smaller town.

I lived in Corydon for a long time. Overall I think it's a great place. Small town living, big sense of community, and the people are decent overall. It has a nice little downtown historic square with some shops, places to eat, etc...

I lived on the outskirts of Corydon(more country), it's actually a pretty area. Every town unfortunately has drugs, but Corydon is a lot better than most smaller towns. I think you'd be happy!

Not particularly. I suppose if you have a low property right on the creek, but not in general like parts of Louisville or New Albany
