Built in 1902, the Janet Taylor MacIntyre House was one of the earliest homes in the College Hills Tract Subdivision of Manoa. It is significant for its architecture and its association with Janet Taylor MacIntyre who rose to prominence in the Hawaiian business community of the early 1920’s working for the then newly established Bishop Trust Company. It is also significant for its association with the early residential development of Honolulu. The one-story, wood-frame house exemplifies the Queen Anne Revival style through its asymmetrical facade featuring a bay window and decorative porch trim, and the multiple gables with carved verge boards, fish-scale shingles and round headed vents are classic Queen Anne exterior elements. The interior has high ceilings, formal front parlor and clear pine floors, which are typical of the style. These elements display the upper-middle class standards of the community’s new population that rose to prominence in the early 20th century.
