The Waioli Mission District is located in the Hanalei Valley and consists of two adjoining parcels of land. The first is the Waioli Mission itself and one of the four buildings located on this land is the main Waioli Mission Residence (1836). The second portion of the district is the church property, and on it stands the old Waioli Hui‘ia Church (1841), the new Waioli Hui‘ia Church (1912), and a parsonage associated with the newer church. Waioli Church and Mission house were the center of mission activities on the Hanalei side of Kaua‘i and played an important role in the history of that part of the island. The Waioli Mission buildings are also significant in Hawaii as examples of early missionary building skills and design.
