The Honolulu House Museum stands at the heart of Marshall’s National Historic District and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Historic American Buildings Survey. The house was built in 1860 for the first U.S. consul to the Sandwich (Hawaiian) Islands. Constructed of Marshall sandstone, the building is a wonderful blend of Italianate, Gothic Revival and Polynesian architecture. The Marshall Historical Society has restored the building’s interior to its 1880s elegance that features decorative wall and ceiling paintings.

The Honolulu House is the headquarters of the Marshall Historical Society which has operated the building as a museum since 1961. For more information, visit www.marshallhistoricalsociety.org.
