The East Hamakua Protestant Church is a single-story rectangular church building. It sits on a knoll on a cane road above the main highway and overlooks the ocean and cane fields of the Honokaa Sugar Company. It is located in the middle of the canefields and a lava rock wall separates the church property from the agricultural pursuits. The East Hamakua Protestant Church is architecturally significant as it embodies the distinctive characteristics of a small Hawaiian Congregational Church of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Its materials and method of construction are typical of its period.
