Looking For Something To Do This Weekend? Check Out The Honolulu Museum in…Marshall
I don't really know that much about Marshall, just the place downtown for chili dogs, the restaurant downtown and it's the county seat. Today I learned there's a Honolulu Museum, too.
The Honolulu House Museum will be open during the weekends in April to start the 2016 season. Operating hours will be 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The museum then will be open daily, except Tuesdays, from May 1 through Oct. 31 and also be open weekends in November and December. Adult admission for a tour of the museum is $5. It's free for Marshall Historical Society members.
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 by a former 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. A replica of the 1880s fence was installed in 2013 in front of the building. The Honolulu House is the headquarters of the Marshall Historical Society which has operated the building as a house museum since 1961.
