The Gibraltar Historical Association is bringing history alive with a special demonstration on August 22 at a very appropriate location. The Noble Square in Fish Creek will play host to horse shoeing performed by the Door County’s Thumbs Up Riders. Alexander Noble was Fish Creek’s blacksmith back in the late 1800’s. Heather Richard will demonstrate the art of horse shoeing with live horses, the bending of metal and the proper fitting of the shoes. Krissy Bergwin, president of Thumbs Up Riders, shares the historical significance of the blacksmith.
The Living History: Blacksmithing at Noble Square will be from 10 in the morning until 3 pm on Wednesday, August 22 behind the historic Noble House in downtown Fish Creek.
