Abstract
The Marconi Wireless Telegraph Station sits on a fairly level, approximately 89-acre, ocean-front parcel in Kahuku. The four concrete buildings range from one to two-and-a-half stories in height. Ample open space separates the four buildings and their distinct functions, with a recently made shrimp pond situated between the power house/operating building and the manager’s cottage and administration building. The Marconi Wireless Telegraph Station at Kahuku is significant at the state level for its associations with the development of wireless communications in Hawaii and the role it played in providing the islands with worldwide wireless telegraphic, and later telephonic communication.
