Noblesville

OVERVIEW

Noblesville was founded in 1823 and is described as a “whole life community”, meaning it is a place where residents can do everything from raising a family to pursuing a career to retiring and everything in between. It has an evident historic past as well as a lively future in the modern economy. New home and business construction is found throughout the city, however, brick-paved streets and some of its architectural elements give it a rich, historic tone. Noblesville’s standard housing costs are between $215,000 and over $400,000.

Downtown Noblesville is a diverse commercial district, where you can find coffee shops, cafes, antique stores, and professional offices, not to mention Victorian homes dating from the late 1800s. This era also gave Noblesville its blue collar heritage as a hard-working city with a strong base of manufacturing and industrial jobs.
