How do Chambers Island, Alexander Noble House Museum, and Paramount Records come together in this story? The Gibraltar Historical Association purchased a phonograph at a rummage sale a few years ago. We have always known the Dennett and Wisconsin Chair Company's connection to Chambers Island. However, when we stumbled upon information about phonograph cabinets being produced in Wisconsin, it sparked our curiosity. Little did we know, the records we found in the cabinet were linked to Paramount, a surprising twist that brought the story full circle.

Join us for a unique opportunity to delve into the life of Fred Dennett, the Ethnic Music Beginnings, and the Great Tunes of the time. This talk promises to be a fascinating journey into the past. Special Guest David Watkins, Vinyl expert of Door County.
