Noble Square
4167 Main Street, Fish Creek

Cherryland A's, Model A Club

July 16, 2019

2:00pm - 4:00pm

Everyone wants to turn back the clock and see, feel or witness what it might be like to ride in a Model A coupe.  Door County’s Cherryland A’s Model A Club is coming to town for visitors to catch a glimpse of the trend of the late 1920’s- early 1930’s.  A great little set of wheels, sometimes called the A or the A-bone replacing the Model T which was the car of choice for over 18 years.  The 1928 model was only available in 4 colors, and the cost for a roadster $385.00.  Ford was reluctant to leave the Model T but competition rules and he modified and over 1 million A’s were sold in 2 months and 2 million in 6 months.  Truly the race to have a Model A was at hand.

Come visit Noble Square in beautiful Fish Creek, the corner of Main Street and Hwy 42.  The beautiful gardens will be the perfect setting to stroll and view member’s cars and ask questions of experts like Arvid Anderson.  Cars will arrive by 2:00 and a special added bonus Fish Creek Concerts in the Park is having a great Dixieland & Swing Band, called “Talk of the Town” at 4:00-6:00.

After strolling the grounds of Noble Square, Gibraltar Historical Association invites you to visit the Alexander Noble House Museum. The 2019 exhibit is Victorian Wedding customs and gowns.  The home built in 1875 is the oldest wood frame residence in Fish Creek and the perfect setting to view 16 vintage gowns of yester year. Open 10:00-3:00 with a small admission of $5.00.

Visitors are invited to bring stories, artifacts and pictures that capture the history of Gibraltar and Fish Creek.  The event is free and all are welcome to attend.
