SHPD Historic Site Number

Kilohana, also known as Wilcox Homestead, contains two historic structures: a small two-room cottage of single wall construction that features the generous use of moldings, trim, and other decorative elements; and an imposing two story, 30,000-square foot residential building designed in the “English country house style” with interior Pacific and American Art Deco design detailing. Both buildings represent architectural elements of a grand working homestead that was associated with the economic and social fabric of the island of Kauai. The larger building reflects the work of master architect Mark Potter, while the cottage reflects the earlier construction, design, and decorative techniques used at the homestead near the turn of the twentieth century.
