The Waiakea Mission Station, better known as the Haili Congregational Church, is a wood frame building of double-wall construction measuring 50 x 75 feet with a simple corrugated metal gable roof and a square central tower at the north end of the building. The building is constructed in a simplified interpretation of the Greek Revival style. The Haili church is significant as an intact example of an early missionary church in Hawaii. In terms of architecture, the building is comparable to contemporary New England churches and meeting houses.
