The Lihue Civic Center Historic District is comprised of a park and three buildings: the County Building, the County Building Annex, and the County Courthouse. All features are located within one city block, a large open space in the heart of downtown Lihue and all are of masonry construction one or two stories in height, which is in keeping with the scale of the city. The Lihue Civic Center Historic District, as the center of government activity on the island of Kauai, is of local political and governmental significance. The buildings, which were built within a twenty-five-year period, represent the architectural aspirations of their time, employing the popular Neoclassical revival and Spanish Mission revival styles.
