In celebrating our 85 years of service to our community in 2021, it’s nice to look back at where we came from – right here in our community.
But our current headquarters used to look very different, and is also not the first location we called home.
Do you remember?
We started on Main Street in Albion
What most know as the current location of Central Noble Community School Corporation was once the home of Noble REMC.
The co-op had temporary offices in its first few years – thanks, “County Agent” office! – but we found our first permanent location on Main Street in Albion, home to the Farm Bureau office at the time, in 1937.
Nearly 30 years later, we purchased our pole yard area on Weber Road, near the railroad tracks, in 1962, and soon after, made the transition to our current headquarters.
Weber Road became our new home
In 1978, we moved to our current Weber Road location, but it didn’t look anything like it does now, as you can see below.
It came with 10 acres and the potential to expand and renovate the empty buildings on site. A drive thru spanned the west side of the building, which was about half the size of our current headquarters.
Two decades later, we would expand
While it’s the same location, our current headquarters now looks completely different with an expansion and renovation of our main building in 2009 and an expansion of our garage in 2017.
We’re proud to have stayed in our community for the past 85 years, and we look forward to the future and our place in it.
