City of Noblesville | Architecture of Indiana 

Noblesville, Indiana's history, like most of the towns in the Midwest, began with its inception in what is now downtown Noblesville. In 1818, the United States government purchased a plot of land in Central Indiana from the Delaware Indians that were living there; the plot was destined to become the town of Noblesville.

When the town was first laid out, by Josiah Polk and William Conner (whose wife, interestingly, was a Delaware Indian), it was 1823. Within a year, Noblesville, Indiana was declared the County Seat of Hamilton County. By 1851, the town of Noblesville was officially incorporated.

In 1888, natural gas was discovered inside Noblesville. Industry came from far and wide to take advantage of this new Noblesville business, and the downtown commercial district was born. During this period of enormous prosperity in Noblesville history, many beautiful Victorian homes were erected, mostly in what is now called the Downtown Courthouse Square.
