26th Annual Home Tour

Saturday, September 15th, 2012  10 am - 5 pm

Life will soon return to a more leisurely pace as it does once every year during the Noblesville Tour of Historic Homes. This year’s tour takes place on Saturday, September 15, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and marks its 26th year of support for the Noblesville Preservation Alliance.


During this year’s event, ten private residences and cultural sites will open their doors to visitors, including nine on Noblesville’s main thoroughfare, Conner Street. Preservation buffs, interior design fans and people who simply enjoy a weekend stroll will love this longstanding Noblesville tradition. The sites are primarily in the Johnstown, Midland and Plum Prairie historical zones of significance and are within walking or biking distance from one another.

Advance tickets are $10 each (children under 12 free) and are available in Mid-August at Noble Coffee and Tea (933 Logan St.), the Sheriff's Residence/Hamilton County Historical Society (810 Conner St.), and additional locations to be announced. Advance tickets are also available at Eventbrite.com. Tickets may be purchased on the day of the tour at Tour Headquarters at the Sheriff's Residence/Hamilton County Historical Society for $12 each (children under 12 free). All proceeds benefit NPA.

Public parking is available in downtown Noblesville and along our many residential streets. Bike parking is available downtown on the square and informally at each tour stop. Make a day of it by taking advantage of downtown Noblesville’s lovely shops and delicious restaurants. This is a rain or shine event; tickets are non-refundable.

NPA is happy to bring a number of exciting events to the 2012 Home Tour.  Below are just some of the additional special events of the 2012 Tour. 

Nickel Plate Arts Campus Open House at 107 S. 8th St: Come and see the completed Judge Stone House and Stephenson House.

Noblesville Presbyterian Church at 1207 Conner Street will host a fundraiser luncheon from 11:30-2:00, during which visitors can enjoy two pipe organ concerts.

Included on the tour is a bonus "under construction" house at 1254 Maple Avenue. Built around 1901, it has been in the same family for two generations and undergoing renovations since late 2006. 

The Hamilton County Historical Society will open up the newly restored women's cells in the Old Jail at 810 Conner Street.

Noblesville Rotary is sponsoring a historical bike tour around Noblesville. You will have the option to take the tour by bike - just pick up a map and free t-shirt before starting your journey.

The Historical Scavenger Hunt is perfect for kids and adults alike! Pick up a scavenger hunt flyer and see if you can identify the architectural details from each home. Turn it in at your last tour stop and get a prize!

Local high school musicians will supply entertainment in the form of two string ensembles at two stops on the tour.
