The Moses Residence is a single-story bungalow distinguished by an outset porch that wraps around its southeast corner and dominates the two principal elevations of the house. The porch has a slightly pitched flat roof with overhanging eaves with exposed rafter tails that are decoratively carved. The Moses Residence is significant at the local level for its associations with the development of Halaulani Place as well as the development of Hilo. The house was one of the first five houses constructed in the subdivision. The home is also significant for its architecture as a good example of a bungalow constructed in Hawaii in the 1920s.
