He has combined his passion for history and visual art for you to enjoy. He will be displaying fine art images of Prince, Frida Kahlo, Muhammad Ali, The Mt. Rushmore series, and more. While we cannot access the Art Gallery at City Hall in person, please enjoy this online gallery of Bryce’s works.

Previous NobleStories on Noblesville Preservation Alliance Page

In the late 19th century, Noblesville was the largest city in Hamilton County. The Firestone plant and Forest Park were not yet built. The high school was in Seminary Park and there was no hospital. Several railroads ran through town. The city limits barely stretched a few blocks outside of the courthouse square. For the next Noblestories, local author and REALTOR Kurt Meyer takes a close look at life in 1890’s Noblesville with words and pictures from that era.
Noblestories is a program of the Noblesville Preservation Alliance that gives today’s residents a glimpse into Noblesville’s past. NPA is partnering with Hamilton County Television to present and preserve these memories to help inform and enrich the lives of current and future residents. The event is streamed live on Hamilton County TV and available for viewing afterward at
This is the fourth in the series, which also included memories of high school in the 1960’s, the Firestone plant and a promotional film of the city made back in the 1930’s.
