Noblesville Cultural Arts District
About the District
As one of the state’s oldest communities, Noblesville straddles the line between modern and historic — a phenomenon community leaders have dubbed “hipstoric” — and boasts a rich history that predates even Indianapolis. Noblesville continues to be the home of the longest continuous running Shakespeare in the Park in Central Indiana, and the Indiana Transportation Museum which provides immersion experiences for guests on restored, historic trains year round. The city is also now home to the new Nickel Plate Arts Campus, dedicated to encouraging art and artists through studio and gallery space, classes, and frequent artistic events. Musicians, artists, and writers now regularly gather at Logan Street Sanctuary, a converted historic building near downtown for concerts, arts and literature events, workshops and classes. Noblesville’s identity hinges with a strong emphasis on preserving its history and heritage while embracing new things – it strengthens the authenticity of the community’s composition with the richness of historic buildings and the buzz of interesting things happening all around them.
