Suburban life with small town charm.
The City of Noble is named after James Noble, the U.S. Secretary of the Department of the Interior. Established as one of the original towns along the historic Santa Fe Railroad route from Kansas to Texas, it was claimed and platted by Albert Rennie during the great land run of 1889. For years, Noble was home to a busy railroad depot, several cotton gins, hotels and a thriving Main Street business District.
Located just east of the South Canadian River immediately south of Norman in Cleveland County, Noble is a growing residential and business community that is considered part of the greater Oklahoma City Metropolitan area. The University of Oklahoma is only a few minutes’ drive north, while the entire Oklahoma City metro, including Tinker Air Force Base, is accessible via short commute. Today, Noble has a population of approximately 6,000 residents.
The city offers a variety of municipal services including police and fire protection, ambulance service, comprehensive land use planning and zoning services, water, wastewater, storm water, and solid waste services. The utility systems operate for the benefit of the City of Noble and are an integral part of the City operations.
Noble is home to three parks complete with the Austin Haley Memorial Splash Pad, a disc golf course, walking trails and various other recreational activities. The Noble Public Library is part of the Pioneer Public Library system and hosts many educational and recreational activities throughout the year.
Noble is known as the Rose Rock Capital of the World due to the predominance of the rare Rose Rock that can be readily found in a geological vein that runs nearby. The city hosts an annual Rose Rock Festival with music, crafts, vendors, food and fun each April. Residents and visitors also enjoy various other cultural events throughout the year including celebrations at Halloween, community dinners at Thanksgiving, an annual Christmas showcase, a golf tournament, Noble Bears sporting events and much more.
The City of Noble and its residents invite you to come visit the Rose Rock Capital of the world—one of Oklahoma’s best small towns with a big heart.
