HISTORY


From the native logs used to build Asa Thorp’s cabin, to the carefully gathered stones on the walls of the Stenzel gas station, the historic structures of Fish Creek reflect the character and lifestyle of its pioneers. Simple and sturdy, the buildings were erected in the 1860’s through the turn of the century. The center of the village has over 20 of these monuments to a colorful and remarkable heritage. We invite you to stroll along our streets  . . . “tarry” in yesteryear . . . and discover the tiny lumbering and fishing port that became a popular boom-town resort community.

Make sure to visit the Alexander Noble House and check out all of the great historical offerings the Gibraltar Historical Association has to offer.
