Noble County, founded in 1836, has a rich history centered around the natural elements in the area. Nestled in Northeast Indiana, Wolf Lake was the first village established in Noble County with approximately 2,000 people. Wolf Lake lies on a heavily traveled trail between Fort Wayne and Goshen. This village was comprised of the Miami and Pottawatomie Indians.
Indiana’s most widely read female author, Gene Stratton-Porter, proudly called Noble County home from 1912 to 1940. As a naturalist, author, and photographer, Porter cherished the lush wetlands and lake life in Rome City.
Today, Noble County is home to over 47,500 people and 117 lakes with a variety of outdoor recreational experiences. The tranquil lakes, solitude of our walking trails, and many natural amenities allow for the chance to unplug from the hustle and bustle of life at the office.
