He enlisted for the Civil War and served as a musician in Company A, 8th Vermont Infantry Regiment. After the war, Fisher was active in the Grand Army of the Republic. He returned to work as a carpenter, and soon build up a successful business as a master builder and architect, which eventually included his son Clellan as a partner. Fisher was responsible for construction of several commercial and residential landmarks in Vermont during the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, including the Burlington home of General William Wells, Montpelier's Pavilion Hotel, the Barre school building which is now home to the Barre Granite Association, and Barre's Presbyterian Church. His son later relocated to Worcester, Massachusetts. Alfred B. Fisher lived with his son after retiring in the early 1900s, and he died at his son's Worcester home three days after his 80th birthday.
