NOBLEBORO

2010 Census reports population of 1,643

 

Nobleboro celebrated its Bicentennial as "The Little Town With A Big Heart." A granite monument on the Town Common honors Lt. Col. Arthur Noble, for whom the town is named, who commanded one of three regiments that captured Fort Louisberg from the French in 1745.

Many of the long ago small farms are now rural homes for skilled workers, retirees and vacationers, attracted by the beauty of Damariscotta Lake, Pemaquid, Duck Puddle Ponds and spacious woodlands. Agriculture however is still important in North Nobleboro, with a few large dairy herds providing record supplies of milk. The Alewives continue their amazing spring run at the Great Falls in Historic Damariscotta Mills.

A modern central school, constructed in 1991, shares school grounds with one of the Town's twelve original one room schoolhouses. This 1818 building is now the Nobleboro Historic Center, which preserves and displays Town records, genealogies, and memorabilia, and is also used for meetings of the Nobleboro Historic Society.
