The Makawao History Museum is proud to announce our latest exhibit, open to the public, “Grandma Vovo’s Kitchen: Portuguese Family Memories.” Grandma Vovo’s kitchen, lovingly described in Alice Tavares’ book, Hub of My Wheel, has been recreated in the Museum. The exhibit is representative of what kitchens were like in the upcountry area during the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s from the cast iron sink to the oilcloth table covering.

Friday, March 2, the museum held a small reception for Alice Tavares’ family. Pictured are Alice Tavares and exhibit creators, Cheri Attix and Darrell Orwig.
