The Marques Residence, built in 1910, is located in the Manoa Valley community. It is significant as a product of early twentieth century urban planning and expansion of an upper middle class suburban residential district. It is also significant as a representative example of a Prairie School style residence built in Hawaii in the early twentieth century. This two story structure features a hipped roof that has a very slight double pitch, an attic dormer, decorative brackets along the cornice line located beneath enclosed eaves, and an open-style wrap around porch. Although somewhat altered over time, the house retains most of its original materials and integrity.
