CoryDoors – Used To Be Ozzie’s #ThursdayDoors

Happy Thanksgiving!

One picture today, of a place that used to be Mom and my favorite place to shop for gifts.

This was built in 1800 by William Henry Harrison, governor of the Indiana Territory and, later, President of the United States. In 1821, it became the Branham Tavern. Not long after we moved here, a local dentist bought it and turned it into a museum for his collection of historical-old toys and dental equipment.

That closed, and it reopened as Ozzie’s, the greatest shop EVER. It had everything, from clothes to dishes. She only bought a few of each item, so everybody in Corydon didn’t run around dressed in the same cool stuff. We bought a lot of presents there. It was fun to see how our friends’ eyes would light up when they saw an Ozzie’s bag.

Now it’s some kinda Corydon Historical Society museum. I haven’t had time to visit it yet, but I plan to do some home-town sightseeing in the spring, so I might have more doors from this site.

Thursday Doors is the brain-child of Norm Frampton, photographer extraordinaire. Visit his site, dig is pics, and click on the blue frog link to enter a world of doors.

A WRITING PROMPT BASED ON MY POST: Write about a building that changes hands and purposes.




I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    That looks like a fun little place. I’d prefer shop of tavern, but at least they didn’t tear it down and build a Walmart.

    Happy Thanksgiving Marian ?

      Corydon is all eat up with history. I think we have nine original buildings around downtown, all in use. Pretty cool.

    What a wonderful structure. I hope it can stay a historical museum – the building deserves to be preserved.
