Malama Manoa’s historic house tours began in 1996 when Spencer Leineweber, FAIA, esteemed restoration architect and University of Hawai‘i professor of architecture, led a group from Kamanele Park through the lower Manoa neighborhood of College Hills. Spencer loved Hawai‘i’s historic buildings and lived in a classic 1920s Manoa house which she restored. Sadly, she passed away in June of 2015. This year’s 2016 Historic Manoa Walking Tour was dedicated to her.
In case you missed this special by Catherine Cruz which aired this past week honoring Spencer Leineweber.
