Italianate commercial on the courthouse square in Noblesville Indiana

Italianate Building on the East Side of Courthouse Square

A very nice Italianate styled commercial building mid block on the east side of the courthouse square. And yes, that is my reflection in the window. Taken on April 2, 2010. 

leonard Wild building in Noblesville

Leonard Wild Building

One of my favorite buildings in Noblesville that was built in 1880, located near the south end of the east side of the courthouse square. It was here in 1964 that I shopped for items for my first car, a 1954 Chevy. That was before there were many malls as we know them today. It was so enjoyable shopping in the old hardware stores and extra special doing so on the courthouse square, at least when you are young and times were slower.

Here is a closeup of the building detail. I love buildings with the date and notice that others do also. As you can see, I was beginning to run out of sunlight. These photos were taken on April 2, 2010.

Old commercial buildings in Noblesville Indiana

East Conner Street

Conner street runs east-west on the south side of the courthouse and it is also Hy32 and very busy. This is the first block east of the courthouse on the north side and contains some very nice buildings. I particularly like the third building from the right which I have shown below. This photo was taken on the morning of April 2, 2010 and would you believe, that is my own car that got in the way. I wish I wouldn't do that but in actuality it would be nearly impossible to capture a car less photo anyway.

An Interesting Old Building on East Conner

The old building mentioned above that caught my eye. I suppose the old building got my attention because of the awnings and iron work, and the open entry area and staircase. I wish now I had taken a straight on shot.

 

Queen Anne house in Noblesville Indiana

Queen Anne House on East Conner

Continuing east on Conner Street one block sits this handsome Queen Anne styled house. I love this style and they are generally elaborate and many times have turrets or towers. As you can see this one has a square tower of which I think are more scarce than round ones. This house was built in 1892 and is used as a business. This view looks toward the southwest in the morning.

Another View of the Queen Anne House

I love the wrap around porch and the second story one as well which is another feature of the Queen Anne house along all of the lavish gingerbread work. Also notice the very elegant carriage house in the distance to the right. A very fancy show place in Noblesville. Looking southeast in the afternoon. Both photos of this house were taken on April 2, 2010.

Very nice shingle work on the front of the house. Looking north in the afternoon. Both photos of this house were taken on April 2, 2010.

Daniel Craycraft house

Daniel Craycraft House

A few houses eastward is this beautiful home  which was built in 1892 in the Queen Anne-Romanesque style. It was moved about a block and across the street some years ago. I have grown rather fond of straight on views and so am showing three different views of this. Looking north.
