The historic Castor building where our restaurant is located was constructed in 1891 by William H. Castor a local farmer and entrepreneur.
The first tenant in this location was The Clark Supply House. Starting as a supplier of stoves, ranges and plumbing supplies, over time it sold windmills, pipe, fire brick and incandescent lamps.
On the third floor of the building was the Cherokee Lodge of the Independent Order of Red Men. This fraternal order was founded in 1904 traced its beginnings back to Dec. 16, 1773 and Samuel Adams and the founding of the Sons of Liberty. The Sons of Liberty are believed to be the group that organized the Boston Tea Party.
Grindstone Public House honors the legacy of the building and history of downtown noblesville. With a robust whiskey selection, craft beers, and unique wine selection, we hope you enjoy!
Our Core Values
Clancy's Hospitality, began in Noblesville, Indiana in 1965. Carl Fogelsong, our founder, had a vision for fast food restaurants in small Midwestern towns. Serving a basic menu of quality burgers, drinks, and “the best French fries in town,” Carl grew Clancy’s Hamburgers into a 31 unit regional chain covering four states.
In 1982, the first Grindstone Charley's opened in Noblesville Indiana, to rave reviews. Carl's son, Perry joined the Corporate Team that year after graduating from Indiana University. Perry was instrumental in building the full service division of the company which grew throughout the 80's and 90's into a 12 unit regional chain in Ohio and Indiana.
A third generation of the Fogelsong family joined the corporate team in 2010. Blake Fogelsong, Perry’s son joined Clancy’s Inc. after graduating from Ball State University. The addition of Blake to the corporate team has been instrumental in the development new projects, Grindstone Public House, Grindstone on the Monon, Clancy's Hamburgers inside the Garage Food Hall, and The Fountain Room at Bottleworks.
Pride in our commitment to technically excellent service, with an emphasis on warm hospitality is the cornerstone of our business. Coaching our staff to think our customers as guests in our own home. Thats who we are, that's who we will always be.
