The Kilauea Plantation House is a one-story, hipped-roof house built of stone. Although originally intended for the bookkeepers, it was initial occupied by an agriculturalist. The house is comprised of a living and dining room, three bedrooms, and a fourth bedroom/office. The original superstructure of the porte cochere was destroyed in the 1982 Hurricane Iwa. The Kilauea Plantation House is significant for its stone construction architecture and for its place in the Kilauea Sugar Plantation Company. This stone house is a relatively late example of the Craftsman style and shows its far-reaching popularity and its adaptability to different conditions, materials, and talents of available construction labor.
