Handcrafted by Kerry Brooks - Minnesota Except for Hawaii, Indiana is the smallest state west of the Appalachian Mountains. With a name that is generally thought to mean “land of the Indians,” Indiana was admitted on Dec. 11, 1816, as the 19th state of the union. Corydon was designated as the capital of the state until 1825, when the state government was moved to Indianapolis. This Indiana shaped stoneware coaster is high fired with glass accents that create a unique design element. 6" X 3"
