Decay caused by the tropical environment and the ravages of World War II have seen to it that wooden structures dating to the beginning of the twentieth century have become rare in Micronesia. The Joachim de Brum House on Likiep Atoll is the major property of its kind surviving in the Eastern Micronesia. This paper discusses the significance of the house, its contents and its associated structures against the background of its owner, Joachim de Brum.
