The Albert Spencer Wilcox Building was designed as a single storied structure of beige concrete and native black and brown lava rock with a half basement and a high-pitched blue tile roof. Although originally used as a library, it currently is a museum. The Albert Spencer Wilcox Building is a particularly fine example of a truly indigenous style of architecture, completely original to Hawaii with no counterpart anywhere else and is one of the few surviving Hart Wood designed buildings on the island of Kauai. As a museum it has become a center of information exchange on subjects and activities concerning Kauai.
