In the 1960s, the Marshall Historical Society obtained the house and secured its future as a museum. Through the extensive efforts of the Society, it has been brought back the 1880s elegance that visitors can enjoy today. Restoration of the building is a continuous process, funded by revenue from the annual Marshall Historic Home Tour, memberships, donations, and grants, including National Scenic Byways grants in 2004 and 2010.
Major projects have included foundation work, sandstone wall repairs, ADA compliance, a new bathroom, restorations of the ceiling and wall paintings, carpet reproductions, porch and stairs restoration, and mechanical equipment. Currently under consideration is the replacement of the bedroom wings that were removed in the early 1900s.
The Honolulu House Museum stands in the heart of Marshall’s National Historic Landmark District and is listed on the Historic American Buildings Survey.
