More on Pahoa Museum… Pictures

I’m adding the first two posts at the bottom of this to create one link on my side bar.

Part III

So the Pahoa Museum is getting closer and closer to coming together.  They officially have a sign now.

As well as an official address.  Well they always had an official address, but now people can find them if they are looking for an address.

More interesting stuff is being brought in each and every day.  I thought about plopping myself down on this nice couch but I thought better of it.  I wonder who may have sat in it before?

Who may have sat here?

Part II

A couple weeks ago I posted some pictures and a small snippet about Pahoa’s new community museum that is going to open in February.

I went by today and was able to get some more pictures:

No the following picture is not upside down. This is a large map of the Big Island that has been hung upside down on the ceiling. I asked the person (Sandre) that was inside about the map, but he didn’t have that much information. He did mention that the map maker was someone who designs the larger maps in the world…(or something to that effect):

Of course what museum wouldn’t be complete without it’s share of Hollywood memorabilia and other collectibles from the ages:

They are still shooting for a February grand opening.

I don’t want to give away all the secrets of this place.

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.
