We were the only two on our tour (donation: $5 per) and quite enjoyed it. Our docent knew her stuff, and there are revolving displays. The house itself is not changed much in close to 150 years, and..... more

Very well maintained house beautifully decorated and preserved. Seldom have we visited historic homes that have stayed in the same family. The guide for our tour provided not only the house and families history but also included historical content for the period. Nice experience.
I'm a docent at the Noble House. I get to dress in costume and lead tours. We have a 3-year cycle of displays. This year, 2022, we are doing A House In Mourning: Victorian Funerals. Next year, we'll be doing Victorian Weddings, and the year after that, A Glimpse of Old Fish Creek. Those are the day tours. At night, there is a trolley in Fish Creek that stops at the Noble House on a ghost tour 7 days a week. The day tours go from Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00-3:00, and each tour lasts from 20-30 minutes. The entrance fee is $5/person and is used to help maintain the house. I give a rollicking good tour if I do say so myself!
