Santa House needs Santas


The Hamilton County Historical Society is looking for multiple Santas for the Santa House on the square.

A partnership between the historical society, Hamilton County, who owns the house, Noblesville Main Street and the Noblesville Chamber of Commerce has continued the operation of the original house on the south side of the square.

The historical society is the primary operator, with the other organizations lending a hand. Hamilton County has offset the cost of operating the house by agreeing to build an ADA-compliant ramp. The county also is storing the house and maintaining it in the future.

Noblesville Main Street Executive Director Lorna Steele said approximately five Santas are needed to divide the 42 hours of work. Hired Santas will be paid, and Steele said if enough Santas are interested, hours could be extended for the Santa House. Applicants also will need to pass a background check.

Volunteers are also being sought to help move guests in and out of the Santa House, take photos and interact with the crowd. Everyone who visits will get their photo taken for free, with photos printed on site.

Donations are being taken to help offset operating costs, and checks should be made out the Hamilton County Historical Society with “Santa” in the memo line.

Hours for the Santa House are 3 to 6 p.m. Nov. 25, 5 to 9 p.m. Dec. 7, noon to 5 p.m. on Saturdays from Dec. 1 to 22, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sundays Dec. 2 to Dec. 23, and from 1 to 4 p.m. Dec. 24.
