Mokuaikaua Church is a large stone church centered in a small level lot near the center of Kailua. Its high steeple stands out conspicuously and has become a landmark from both land and sea. Mokuaikaua Church is significant for being the first and one of the largest stone churches in Hawaii, outstanding for its simple, well-proportioned mass and construction. The interior open timber structure with high galleries is a fine architectural and engineering design.
