Despite gloomy skies, it was all smiles Friday evening as Noblesville opened the new Visitor's Center, a collaboration with the Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau.The new visitor information center is located on the south side of the square on Conner Street in historic downtown Noblesville and sports not only a complete interior renovation, but also a beautiful exterior facade restoration that encompasses three storefronts. Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear welcomed a group of about 75 who had gathered to celebrate this new milestone for Noblesville -- one of our eight great towns and one of the top destinations for Hamilton County visitors. After the greeting, Mayor Ditslear was joined by Hamilton County Councilman Meredith Carter and HCCVB Board of Directors President Denise Miller during a ribbon cutting ceremony. The crowd included city employees and architectural/construction experts who had worked on the project, members of the Noblesville Common Council, Hamilton County Commissioners and Councilors, members of the Noblesville Main Street (which now resides in the upstairs portion of the building), Hamilton County Tourism Commissioners, HCCVB Board members and more. The new welcome center joins others in Fishers and Carmel and is a place for county visitors and community residents to find out more about where to eat, shop, stay the night, hike, canoe and simply enjoy Hamilton County! The center also sports great public restrooms -- always a welcome travel amenity -- as well as a small gathering place for special events. New furnishings will be added to the adjacent lighted alley as well to provide a place for visitors and neighbors to stop and rest. Stop by the new Noblesville Visitor's Center during its summer hours: May 17 through Sept. 4: weekdays noon to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Center is also open for special events, including the Hamilton County 4-H Fair in Noblesville, First Fridays and more.
