Makawao History Museum will be hosting guided tours the first Sunday of every month through December. If after the three-month trial the tours become popular, the museum may keep them.
The tours will give participants a feel of what Makawao was like during the 1920’s-1940’s. Makawao was the center of social life for the farmers and plantation workers. Movies were only 10 cents, and friends would gather at the local barber shop for haircuts and games.
Although the buildings are now boutique shops, art galleries and restaurants, the original architectural style that makes the town so unique remains. The tours are free, however a $5 donation is suggested. Next tours will be at 10 am November 4th and December 2nd!
