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.

The Honolulu House is one of Marshall's great treasures. So much history in one building. Very well preserved and cared for. Many wedding pictures are taken on the porch and front steps. A must see when visiting Marshall.

This eccentric museum/house is a delightful and entertaining place to visit while in the Marshall area. The tour was well worth the cost. Even our youngest teen was impressed.

A truly beautiful home inside and out. It was a very interesting tour that lasted about 45-50 minutes. Standard Oil wanted to raze this home and build a gas station. Good thing they didn't. The historical society is still working on this gem.

The Honolulu House is at the fountain circleon the west end of Marshall. It is home to the local historic society and is a carefully maintained historical building and museum. It was built by a man who returned to Marshall after serving as the ambassador to the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii). It is well worth a visit.

We visited the Honolulu House while going on the Marshall MI Historic tour. The docents were charming, had varied storied and not always simply sticking to the script. The house is beautiful, the history is amazing, and the entertainment on the porch set a beautiful tone for the event. Worth visiting anytime, tour or no tour.

We enjoyed our personalized tour of the home with a docent that was very knowledgeable about the history of the city and home. The home is amazing painted ceilings and has been restored as much as possible to its glory days. The town of Marshall is lovely and we enjoyed walking in the area.
