History

Noblesville’s history dates back to the early 1800’s when a settler named William Conner had resided in this area at the time of purchase and, along with his Delaware Indiana wife, Josiah Polk, built what would become Indiana’s first trading post in 1802. Around 1818, land which had been owned by Native Americans was purchased by the government and would become a part of Hamilton County. In 1823, the area that would serve as downtown Noblesville was laid out by Mr. Conner and his wife.  In 1824, this area was set as the county seat of Hamilton County and later incorporated in the year 1851. One of the main attractions at the Conner Prairie museum in Fishers, just south of Noblesville is William Conner’s 1823 home.

In 1888, a natural gas was discovered which sparked the city’s first boom in population. The well was located near Pleasant Street and 11th Street. Indeed, it was the ensuing period of prosperity that lead to the building of Noblesville’s many downtown Victorian homes. 

The Courthouse Square located in the heart of Noblesville’s downtown area is a prime example of the Second Empire architectural style that prevailed around its time of construction in 1876.
