My mom and I really didn't know anything about this place before dropping by, but it was highly recommended by our host (that we were staying with in Marshall), so we decided to give it a go. The house is a beautiful piece of art. The architecture is lovely (Polynesian and Asian influenced) and the interior artwork and furniture is... More

Had an excellent tour of this historical home, led by Sue. There were four of us. She spent an hour explaining the significance of beautifully painted walls and ceilings of this home inspired by a government official. The Marshall Historical Society has spent much time and money restoring this Marshall landmark. Small fee for tour. Can also go through house... More

From the moment you walk in until you leave, you are surrounded by unbelievable beauty and splendor. All painted by one man and couple assistants in about a year is just mind boggling considering the detail and complexity of the design. If you like home tours and grandeur, this home is for you.

Well worth the trip inside and out. Interesting tour of days gone by. Intricate hand painted walls that will amaze you. Old artifacts and furnishings to view. Saw this on the Marshall Historic Home Tour.

Visited Honolulu House and was delighted by the docent's willingness to share her time and info. She is a Marshall native and loves the house and her job. We must have been there over an hour. The paintings on the ceiling and the walls are remarkable. If you are willing and there are small numbers of people in the house,... More

Who would ever think that they would find a historical governor's mansion decorated in Hawaiian style in south central Michigan? Yet it is in Marshall, Michigan as part of the National Historical Landmark District town. Go on the docent tour and be amazed!

After wondering the town of Marshall we stumbled across Honolulu House. The house itself is beautiful ... The interior proved interesting and did make you wonder about the original owner and his unique taste! The tour lasted about 20 minutes, the guide, she was a delightful lady! For $5, a good little piece of history!!!

The Honolulu House in Marshall is one of the most unique old houses you will ever see. The museum is lovingly cared for by the Historical Society and there are many great stories to hear about the house. We go through it every year as part of the Historic Homes Tour and it never gets old.

The story of the builder of the home was very interesting as were the murals and antiques in all the rooms.
