A new exhibit at the Alexander Nobel House in Fish Creek will take you back to Victorian Era England. The Gibraltar Historical Society, which owns the Noble House, has acquired 16 wedding gowns from between 1850 and 1950. The exhibit is called “Victorian Wedding Customs and Gowns.” Many were donated by residents and visitors to Door County who didn’t want to see their mother’s, grandmother’s or great-grandma’s dress hanging in a resale shop according to Gibraltar Historical Society Director Laurie Buske. She says the wedding dresses of today are inspired by the gowns from this period.
“Victorian Wedding Customs and Gowns” will run until mid-October. Admission to the Noble House is $5 and it is open from 10 AM to 3 PM Tuesday through Sunday. Pictures of the gowns can be found online with this story.
