Alexander Noble Residence

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 8 February 2021 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The Alexander Noble House, built in 1875, is a historic Greek Revival farmhouse located in Fish Creek, Door County, Wisconsin on Wisconsin Highway 42. The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on February 23, 1996. Alexander Noble, one of the founders of Fish Creek, 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. The house offers tours that portray life in Door County over a century ago, depicting the village as a thriving fishing and shipping village with horse-drawn wagons traveling the dirt streets.

The house is run as a nonprofit institution operated by the Gibraltar Historical Association.

This is a lovely farmhouse. I am glad that it has been so well cared for. It is sad because as farms are sold, these old farm houses are torn down as are the barns. A beautiful image.

It always amazes me to see homes like this so well preserved and kept. I really like your framing of this house with the trees but it's the perspective of looking up at the house that really gives it such presence. As always, very interesting to learn about the images you take.

sherri from Little Rock, Arkansas, United States

it's been kept beautiful since it was built, no doubt as it doesn't appear to have the wear and tear of a frame house of its age
