Fairies, gnomes and trolls are the most secretive of all creatures. They are rarely seen, and prefer to do their magic at night, under the cover of darkness.
Noble County has invited these wonderful creatures to become a part of our community, bringing their joy, magic and mystical talents with them.
Most are friendly, but very shy.
PLEASE . . . do not disturb them. We don't want them to become frightened and leave!
