The Marshall Historical Society was organized in 1961 to preserve, protect and promote Marshall's heritage. It has restored three historic buildings in Marshall. The Honolulu House was built in 1860 by Abner Pratt, then-consul to the Sandwich Islands. The exterior architecture is a blend of Italianate, Gothic and Polynesian. The interior features paint-on-plaster wall and ceiling paintings restored to the splendor of the 1880’s, including period furnishings and authentic replicas of the carpets. The G.A.R. Hall was built in 1902 by Marshall Civil War Veterans to accommodate the Grand Army of the Republic. It currently houses Marshall memorabilia from the Civil War and Spanish American War, and Marshall police and firefighters artifacts. Built in 1860 adjacent to the intended Michigan state capitol, Capitol Hill School is the only survivor of three identical Gothic Revival Schools. It was removed from public service in 1961, but now continues to serve students who come to participate in a turn-of-the-century classroom experience. The Honolulu House and Capitol Hill School are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is also listed on the Historical American Building Survey. The Honolulu House is open May 1 thru Oct 1, daily 11 am – 5 pm. The GAR and CHS are open by appointment.
