This elegant Hawaiian home was built for prominent Honolulu businessman John Thomas Waterhouse Jr. The house was constructed sometime between 1884 and 1888 and is situated in Nu’uanu Valley on Wyllie Street. Significant for its architecture, the wood-frame, two-story building is supported by a post and stone foundation. It is rectangular in plan, with a full open porch extending to the Diamond Head porte cochere. The home is the second oldest home in Nu’uanu Valley, and one of the oldest wood-framed structures in the state.
