The Hamilton County Historical Society was founded in 1963 as a not for profit educational institution created to collect, preserve and interpret the history of Hamilton County, Indiana. The Society has endeavored to promote historical awareness in the communities within one of the fastest growing counties in the United States, through tours of the museum, brochures, their newsletter and personal recollections recorded by the members of the society. The society runs the Hamilton County Museum of History on Courthouse Square in Noblesville. It is housed in the Old Sheriff’s Residence and Jail, which was built in 1875-1876 and served as the county jail until 1977. The Hamilton County Historical Society has restored the interior and developed the museum for the public to visit and enjoy.
