The Arthur L. Andrews Residence was built in 1913 in Manoa Valley. Besides reflecting the development of a community, namely the College Hills subdivision, this structure is also significant for its high artistic and aesthetic value. The house showcases the artistry and whimsicalness of a designer/builder that liberally borrowed design elements and details from different styles to create a unique structure. While the house has undergone a moderate amount of alteration, enough original material and design elements remain to imbue the house with a fairly high level of historic and architectural integrity. The residence is also significant for its association with Arthur L. Andrews, an English professor, after whom Andrews Amphitheatre on the University of Hawaii campus is named.
