Alexander Noble House Museum is patiently waiting to open the doors to their 2015 exhibit, A House In Mourning. The clocks have stopped, the mirrors have been covered and all preparations made to present the funeral of the century. This historic building located on Fish Creek’s busiest intersection, 4167 Main Street, will be opening its doors to share the history of the Victorian-era funeral.

Alexander Noble, a prominent citizen in Fish Creek is the perfect choice for this honoree funeral. Alexander was one of the first settlers of Door County. He was well respected and served as Chairman on the county and town board and was the postmaster. Besides serving his community he was the town blacksmith caring for machinery, tools, carriages and horseshoes. His deep concern for the village was shown by the donation of land for the first school.

Tours for this exhibit will run Tuesdays through Sundays, 10 am – 3 pm, June through October. Docents will greet guests and share some interesting facts about the exhibit. For more information, call 920.868.2091 or email [email protected].
