Hidden from the main thoroughfare by a thick grove of trees, in an area laden with ohia trees, is a small subdivision marked by two large lava rock pillars called Hale Ohia Tract. Some typical features include corrugated roofs and lava rock chimneys. Styles in this concentration of historic homes vary greatly. The Hale Ohia Tract is significant for its varied, intact concentration of architectural examples, such as one of only two known true log cabins in Hawaii, Craftsman bungalows, and examples of single wall construction. The area is further significant as a representative portion of Volcano Village, a favorite vacation spot of affluent society.
