The wooden vernacular buildings of the Uchida Coffee Farm sit amid a variety of fruit and macadamia nut trees on the Western slopes of Mauna Loa in the Kona coffee district. The nomination includes the mill, the house, and a portion of the surrounding fields. The Uchida Coffee Farm is significant for its association with the development of coffee farming along the Kona coffee district of Hawaii Island and an amazingly intact example of the vernacular structures that typify the coffee farm lifestyle and technology used from the 1900s-1950s by Japanese coffee farmers in Kona.
