Thanks to a trust established by John and Ethel Noble, residents of nearby Sharon, Noble Horizons bought its original 64 acres and built the first 20 cottages in 1972 and Riga Residence in 1973. Since then, Noble Horizons has evolved into a village within a village. The Whitridge Nursing Wing opened in 1975, the Cobble and the Chapel in 1983, and Wagner Terrace in 1994. Cottages now number 50 and the campus has grown to 110 acres.
The charming, historic New England town of Salisbury, surrounded by hills, valleys, woods, farms and streams, is Noble's postcard-perfect setting. Salisbury, with a population of just over 4,000, and the small towns within a ten-mile radius offer an abundance of services and shopping opportunities.
Litchfield County, Connecticut, along with neighboring Dutchess County, New York and Berkshire County in Massachusetts are known as a center for the arts. Tanglewood, Music Mountain, Yale at Norfolk, the Berkshire Theater Festival, and the Sharon Playhouse, and a collection of well-regarded galleries are all within easy driving distance. Local arts, educational, environmental, historical and social service organizations cater to a variety of interests.
