Abstract
The California Packing Corporations Plantation Manager’s Residence, situated on the southeast edge of Kualapuu, includes three residential buildings and several outbuildings. The buildings exhibit design elements typical of the plantation style homes constructed for other employees, but larger and more elaborate in design. The California Packing Corporations Plantation Manager’s Residence compound is significant for its association with the pineapple industry on the island of Molokai during the early and mid-twentieth century. The buildings are also significant as representative examples of the type of plantation residences built for the mid-level managers of a pineapple plantation on Molokai in the early part of the twentieth century.
