First Glimpse… A Look Inside the New Pahoa Museum

I got the opportunity to get a quick look at the new Pahoa “Community” Museum that is scheduled to open during Pahoa’s Centennial Anniversary.

The building is located across from Luquins Restaurant:

Owner Pete Lebold thanked his crew of volunteers that were putting endless hours into getting the place opened for a “Soft Opening” today, emphasizing it wouldn’t be open for customers until the centennial.

In some of the corners, you will find coffee trees that have been carved to make intricate holders for different pieces.

Owner Lebold mentioned that although he has spent more then $8,000 of his own dollars on getting this museum open, that it is for the community and that he is still looking for more contributions.
