SHPD Historic Site Number

The Hale Halawai O Holualoa, also known as the Holualoa Stone Church Ruins and the Meeting House at Holualoa, is located on the north shore of Holualoa Bay across from Kamoa Point. The lava stone and coral mortar structure has an outside dimension of 30 x 60 feet. The walls are 26″ thick and stand 11 feet tall. The roof and wood floor of the structure were removed in 1972 due to termite damage; thus the walls are open and exposed to the weather. The Hale Halawai O Holualoa is significant in the history of religion in Hawaii as the site of an early Congregationalist mission. The structure is also significant architecturally as it belongs to a class of mid-nineteenth century coral lime and lava stone structures.
