The Hale Pa‘i Printing Museum, also known as the House of Printing, is a rectilinear structure with bearing walls of coral and lava rock rubble covered with cement plaster on the interior and exterior. It is a single-story structure with a full basement. The Hale Pa‘i is one of the most significant structures associated with missionary history in the islands. The building is also an excellent example of a simple rectilinear form expressing the influence of New England architecture in the early 1800s with the adaptation of indigenous building materials of Hawaii.
