Late 1800s, Early 1900s Come to Life at Noble House

After closing the doors of Fish Creek’s Alexander Noble House ( in 2020, workers packed away 23 wedding gowns, carefully cleaned the museum and placed interesting pieces to reveal Fish Creek’s past. Now the museum is open again for the season and is displaying artifacts of Fish Creek life from the late 1800s into the early 1900s.


The Noble House is the oldest wood-frame residence in Fish Creek, built in 1875 by Alexander Noble, whose many roles included town blacksmith, postmaster and town chair. The house was placed on the Wisconsin and national registers of historic places in 1996.
