HistoryEdit

The LNAC was first established as the Louisville, New Albany and Corydon Railway in 1881, for the purpose of connecting Corydon to the main Louisville-St. Louis line of the then Louisville, New Albany and St. Louis Railway (later acquired by the Southern Railway) that ran a few miles north of town. After construction was completed, the line was opened for business in 1883.[3] In 1887, the company was reorganized as the Louisville, New Albany and Corydon Railroad, a name it kept under various owners for well over a century, until 2006.
