In 1818, Two years after Indiana was granted statehood, it purchased land from Native American tribes in what is now called Hamilton County. In 1823, after settlers began to congregate around the trading post of what is now Fishers, Indiana, William Conner and Josiah Polk planned out what would become the neighboring city of Noblesville. Just one year later, the city was named the county seat, nearly three decades before it was even officially incorporated in 1851. The same year of its incorporation, a railroad had finished construction, strengthening the city’s position for the future.
Later in the 19th century, Noblesville would expand drastically due to the Indiana gas boom. Much of the current neighborhoods and the expansion of the area for business occurred during this time period, making way for the placement of companies in its modern economy.
