“Honlulu House is the icing on the cake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

of all the old Victorian houses and other historic homes and places in the lovely town of Marshall Michigan, not far from Ann Arbor and Detroit. Marshall is also famous for its Underground Railroad protection of an escaped slave in Civil War times.
If in the area, be sure to stop here.

“Wow. Beautiful place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

This place is currently being restored, but still worth a look. The tour guide was excellent. She knew everything about the place down to the light fixtures...which are also beautiful. Pictures were not allowed inside but the impression the art left will stay with me. I loved the stairway that leads to nothing. The normal price is $5, but because of the restoration, they are not charging. Donations are accepted.

“Absolutely Amazing Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

This place was absolutely beautiful. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and made us feel very welcome the whole time we were there. I would definitely recommend a visit. You can't go wrong with the five dollar admission. Currently, because of the restoration going on, they are giving tours for donations.

“Very enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

Our whole family enjoyed our stop here. The guide was knowledgable and told interesting stories. Our kids (15, 13, 11, & 9) all agreed they enjoyed it a lot, even though the house was in disorder because of restoration.
