Constructed at the turn of the century, the Charlotte Erickson Meyer/William C. Furer Residence is a wood frame, two story house, located on the western slope of Manoa Valley. This eclectic structure with intersecting gables is significant for its architecture as an example of Early Colonial Revival and Shingle styles designed by the distinguished Oliver Green Taphagen, who is best known for his design of the Moana Hotel in 1901. It is also significant for its association with William C. Furer, a prominent architect and engineer, who lived in the home from 1917 until his death in 1963. In 1920, Furer began a practice with the noted architect William Mark Potter, a prolific residential architect during the 1930s and 1940s. The house was originally built as a wedding present by B.F. Dillingham for his servant, Charlotte Erickson Meyer and her new husband. It originally consisted of the main house and the carriage house.
