Built in 1929, this house has a U-shaped plan and a low-pitched hipped roof with overhanging eaves and an entry lanai with chamfered wooden columns. The interior features an exposed timber ceiling, board and batten walls, pocket doors, built-in bookcases and cabinetry, and crown moulding. The McCorriston House is significant as an example of a vernacular style of bungalow adapted to Hawaii that also exhibits “Hawaiian Style” architectural design elements.
