The historic Alexander Noble House Museum opens for the season on June 10, featuring “A Glimpse of the Past” with an added feature, Victorian Christmas in the parlor. The Gibraltar Historical Association (GHA) created this display depicting Fish Creek life from the late 1800s to early 1900s.
The exhibit will be especially pleasing to individuals who love period clothing with gowns never displayed before. One room filled with photos of the area from the turn of the century, and another room explores fur trapping and fishing. The Victorian Christmas display in the parlor takes you back to the birth of Christmas in America. The Noble House is the oldest unchanged residence in Fish Creek; it was built in 1875 by Alexander Noble, whose many roles included town blacksmith, postmaster and town chairman. Enjoy a tour of the 10-room home and experience a portrayal of domestic life in Door County at the turn of the century.
