Fish Creek's Oldest Frame Residence

The Alexander Noble House, built in 1875, is an authentic example of Greek Revival farmhouse architecture from the late 19th century. Tour its rooms and experience a portrayal of domestic life in Door County from over a century ago, when tiny Fish Creek was a thriving fishing and shipping village whose dirt streets were traveled by horse-drawn wagons.

Alexander Noble, one of Fish Creek's founding fathers, was born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1829 and moved to Fish Creek in 1863. He served the community as blacksmith, postmaster, town chairman, and county board member. Today, the restored Noble House contains many of its original furnishings and artifacts. The home's authentic room settings depict the period from 1875 to 1900.
