Noble Horizons owes its very existence to the foresight and generous spirit of a succession of donors. Forty years ago, the trust established by John H. and Ethel G. Noble bought not just the original 64 wooded acres where Noble stands (the total acreage is now 110) but built the Cobble, Riga Residence and the first cottages. St. Luke's Chapel and a large portion of the Whitridge Nursing Wing came into being through the extraordinary generosity of the late Arnold Whitridge.

Thirty of Noble's 50 cottages were built by individuals and deeded to Noble as gifts. The exceptional paintings and sculpture throughout the campus were all gifts of the artists or of collectors. Countless other gifts have enabled Noble Horizons to provide its residents with the facilities and services they need to enjoy comfortable, secure and fulfilling lives in a beautiful setting and a life-affirming atmosphere.

A large bequest from the late Caroline Wall, provides an array of services geared specifically to the needs of cottage residents, designed to help them maintain their independence.

New generations of contributors will help ensure Noble's future through bequests, charitable gift annuities, life insurance, and gifts of stock, real estate and gifts in kind.
