SHPD Historic Site Number

The Kunia Camp property consists 127 contributing structures. The residences and community buildings within the camp are united by their physical development as a village for plantation workers provided by the California Packing Company for its employees. The 107 residences have the distinctive characteristics of the Hawaiian Plantation Style of architecture, which includes vertical boards on the exterior, single-wall construction, and low-pitched roof with wide, overhanging eaves. Still surrounded by agricultural land, Kunia Camp is the last intact pineapple plantation housing community under one ownership on Oahu. Kunia Camp is significant for its historic associations with the development of the pineapple industry in Hawaii; its specific association with CPC/Del Monte from 1916 until 2007; its unique collection of plantation residences.
