The original Liar's Bench was located under a shade tree on the corner of Chestnut and Capital, in Corydon, Indiana, from 1929 to 1986. It was a popular and cool place for the men to congregate. Many generations of stories have been told on this bench, but it was always understood that what is said here...stays here.
