The Corydon Capitol State Historic Site will have two public events this month, including naloxone training and a virtual tavern crawl.

With the United States in the middle of an opioid crisis, and Indiana at the epicenter, the state historic site will have a free Narcan training event Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. for those 18 and older.

Registration is required by today (Wednesday).

Overdose Lifeline will train participants on the use and administration of naloxone, also known by brand name Narcan. Naloxone is a drug that can reverse the effect of an opioid overdose. Attendees will receive a naloxone nasal kit then join an open discussion on the opioid crisis.

Get “foxed and fuddled” during a virtual tavern crawl from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 21.

Harrison County was once home to at least 17 taverns, often frequented by early Indiana politicians. Discover the unique roles that taverns played in American history, plus learn a few historic drink recipes during this event via Zoom!

This event is recommended for persons 21 and older. The cost is $5. Registration is required by Thursday, Nov. 19.

For more information, call 812-738-4890.
