The Lihue Main Post Office is a one-story reinforced concrete building on a slightly raised concrete slab foundation. Divided into three sections, the front facade consists of a central salient with three bays, and flanking wings with one window bay in each. The Lihue Main Post Office is a well-preserved example of a small single-purpose post office. Although expanded in the late-1970s, the building’s original facade maintains good integrity and represents its period of construction.
