Frederick K. Noblet, M.D., a practicing physician and surgeon of Holyoke, was also the proprietor of Noblet Drug Store. He moved to Holyoke in February 1896 to join his brother, Dr. Charles H. Noblet, who had moved here a few months before, and purchased the drug store of G.W. Guinn. F.K. Noblet moved to Denver in November 1903, selling his office fixtures to Dr. F.M. Means, who had just moved here from Thayer, Nebraska, to practice medicine. — Source: Phillips County Museum

Ground has been broken and the footprint is starting to take shape for the new Phillips County Pavilion and Education Center at the fairgrounds. Pictured from left, county commissioners Harlan Stern, Don Lock and Joe Kinnie are at the work site, where project manager Matt Brasby said progress on the foundation is ahead of schedule. Skarco Design of Burlington has been contracted for the concrete foundation, and Maverick Steel of Byers has been contracted for both the building materials and its erection. The pavilion is expected to be finished in time for the the 2018 Phillips County Fair. — The Holyoke Enterprise | Johnson Publications

On the Friday night the Peerless Theatre was officially reopened, Dec. 25, 1998, a line stretched down the block. People were eager to see “The Prince of Egypt,” but they were probably even more eager to see how the theater had turned out. Two shows sold out that Christmas Day, and 60 people who had hoped to see the first showing had to return for the second. — The Holyoke Enterprise file photo

Reopening the theater was always meant, in part, to preserve a piece of Holyoke history. Though the building had seen better days, care was taken to preserve much of the original brick to be reused. Now 75 percent of the facade is made up of original brick, and the building looks strikingly similar to what it looked like nearly 100 years ago. — The Holyoke Enterprise file photo
