Family Historic Sites (more self-promotion):
Coming from a long line of name-droppers, it would be negligent to neglect these historic references.
Not only is Rubel Castle a National Historic Site as of 2013, there are Rubel ancestors who are commemmorated by historic sites as well, most notably the oldest cabin still standing in Salt Lake City, built in 1847 by Osmyn and William Deuel.
Deuel County, Nebraska, is named for ancestor Harry Porter Deuel.
Austin Deuel, Michael Rubel's cousin and a part of the original Pharmhand "rat pack," is a well-known Western artist who was commissioned by the state of Texas to create “Hill-881 South” – San Antonio’s Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Many other large sculptures and public works have subsequently been commissioned.
Another site worth visiting is the Rancho Camulos near Piru, Carlifornia, one of the last of the large Spanish land grants of Southern California when writer and preservationist Charles Lummis attempted to save it by appealing to the State of California to preserve it as a park. The property was subsequently developed into the Billiwhack Dairy and preserved since 1925 by a distant branch of the Rübel Family.
Ira Rubel's invention of the offset printing press changed the world. His first model is preserved at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC.
Thomas Clarke, an ancestor who arrived at the Plymouth Colony in 1623 on the ship Anne, is commemmorated on monuments in Plymouth.
Abraham Clarke was a Revolutionary war figure who was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Clarke Township in New Jersey is named after him.
Michael Rubel's father Heinz wrote for the famous comedian Joe Penner and was a radio personality himself under the pen name Hal Raynor.
