New Book Highlights History of Noblesville

Local author releases new book featuring stunning collection of vintage images
 
Jan. 30, 2013 - PRLog -- New to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Noblesville by local authors Nancy A. Massey and Carol Ann Schweikert. This pictorial history boasts more than 200 vintage images and provides readers with a unique opportunity to reconnect with the history that shaped their community.

Since 1823, Noblesville has served as the county seat for Hamilton County, Indiana. Located on the White River just north of Indianapolis, Noblesville grew from rural beginnings changing as businesses and industry moved into the area, which was encouraged by the discovery of natural gas.

This book documents the history, community life, and growth of Noblesville using stories and photographs collected from local residents, historians, church archives, the Hamilton County Historical Society, and the Hamilton East Public Library. These photographs bring the daily life of this Midwest community vividly into view.

Highlights of Noblesville include:
•   Most of the images were shared from private collections of local residents and have never before been seen publicly.
•   Four churches which are still in existence are highlighted from their beginnings.
•   The Flood of 1913 which impacted multiple Midwest states is pictured as it affected Noblesville.

Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at (888)-313-2665 or online.
