NICKEL PLATE ARTS CAMPUS

Building community around the arts is part of our mission at Nickel Plate Arts. Our campus projects the essence of that community of creative—often quirky—individuals who welcome imagination into their everyday routines. If you seek that same kind of individualism for your events, our creative space can be yours.

JUDGE STONE HOUSE*

An icon of Noblesville’s historic downtown, the circa-1849 Judge Stone House features a sweeping, bright gallery space adjacent to an L-shaped room great for mingling or serving cocktails. Hardwood floors, lots of sunlight and two entrances help make one of Noblesville’s oldest homes timeless.

  • Space: 2 adjoining gallery spaces, L-shaped “cocktail” area, 2 half baths
  • Capacity: 65 people
STEPHENSON HOUSE*

With its inviting wraparound porch and courtyard-facing entrance, the Stephenson House is an intimate home with lots of personality. The front room flows through a wide archway into a second “classroom,” leading back to a full kitchen. Artist studios are located upstairs, sending creative vibes your way.

  • Space: 2 adjoining “classrooms,” outdoor porch, full kitchen, 2 half baths
  • Capacity: 45 people

*Our two historic homes border an intimate courtyard space with permanent sculptures. Parking is available in multiple parking lots very near to the Nickel Plate Arts campus and on the street. Both homes are accessible for people with disabilities.
