Noble House Opens for Season

The historic Alexander Noble House Museum will be open Memorial Day weekend and opens for the season June 7, featuring a new exhibit – A Glimpse of Old Fish Creek. The Gibraltar Historical Association (GHA) created this display depicting Fish Creek life in the 1900s to 1950s with period clothing.

The Alexander Noble House, built in 1875, is an authentic example of a Greek revival farmhouse. The Town of Gibraltar purchased the Noble House with funds raised by the Gibraltar Historical Association (GHA). Enjoy a tour of the 10-room home and experience a portrayal of domestic life in Door County at the turn of the century. Walk the town of Fish Creek where a thriving fishing and shipping village once stood. Imagine the steamships at dock waiting for horse-drawn carriages to delivered summer guests to their lodgings.

Stroll the square and enjoy the flower gardens, trees and historic Carrington shipwreck anchor. The GHA History Center, adjacent to the museum is open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday afternoons, featuring the Garments of our Foundation exhibit.

The GHA also provides guided historical walking tours of downtown buildings on Wednesdays and Fridays at 10 am, from June 18 through Aug. 29.
