Historic Manoa Walking Tour Set For Sunday, May 5th





Join us! Sunday, May 5th- from 8:30 am to 12 noon, for the 2013 Historic Manoa Walking Tour, sponsored by Malama Manoa!

Always a favorite outing, this year the Tour will take place in the Dorch-Schnack or Manoa Heights Addition Tract of 1899, which was one of the earliest in the valley and opened for sale shortly after the College Hills tract that same year. Come explore this area, which includes Awapuhi, Ferdinand, Ventura, Aleo, and Sonoma Street plus Manoa Road. Many of the 30 homes on the route are listed on the Hawaii State Register of Historic Places and feature unique architecture, expansive lawns, and beautiful views. Seven generous homeowners along the route will open their historic properties for viewing.


Advanced sale tickets are available for $30 through May 4, 2013.  The price will increase to $40 on the day of the Tour.  Purchase your tickets early to avoid missing out on this popular event!
Please note that this mile and a half walking tour involves hilly, uneven terrain and properties that may not be handicapped accessible.

Proceeds from the Tour support the activities of Malama Manoa, founded in 1992, to promote community, celebrate our cultural diversity and heritage, and preserve, protect and enhance the special qualities of historic Manoa Valley.

Happy Earth Day!

Here’s to adaptive reuse of a piece of paradise. 
The Refinery Project brings together creativity, community, collaboration, re-use & re-envisioning. A work in progress located in the old historic Waialua sugar mill on the North Shore of Oahu, The Refinery Project inhabits an 11,000 square foot lot that was formerly part of a tow junkyard. “…at the center of the lot, lives an epic 70 foot plus banyan tree that has grown over man-made industrial objects making it part of its own unique beauty, where, in a sense invokes the idea that nature prevails. this notion of thought is the model for the refinery project... taking objects from the old world, making it new, and refining it in place where dreams are made.”
