The Honokaa Sugar Company Manager’s House is a two-story Colonial Revival house with horizontal clapboard siding and a corrugated metal hip roof with gable projections. It features a large, wrap-around lanai that runs the entire makai side of the house to half of the west side. The house sits atop 14 acres of sloping lawns amid large Norfolk pines and eucalyptus trees. The Honokaa Sugar Company Manager’s House is significant for its association with the development of sugar production on the Hamakua Coast and particularly the economic and social development of Honokaa, the second largest city on the Big Island. It is further significant as one of the few extant examples of the work of Honolulu architect Edgar Allen Poe Newcomb.
