SHPD Historic Site Number

This property is the site of two historic structures from the 1920s: a 946-sq. ft. “plantation” style house which has a gable roof and is situated on a post-and-pier foundation; and a 128-sq. ft. utility shed which has a shed roof and is situated on a concrete slab foundation. Both structures feature wood-frame design, single-wall construction, and have corrugated metal roofs. The property is significant as an example of mixed land-use design and development in Kapaa town in the early 1900s. The two historic structures are architecturally significant as examples of the type of building design and construction associated with the community’s original plantation camp housing.
