Wananalua Church is a large stone building, the walls of which have been plastered over. It is dominated by an outset bell tower which serves as the entry. The church has a front-facing, shake-shingled, gable roof and sits conspicuously on a large lot surrounded by a nicely manicured lawn with informal plantings. The Wananalua Congregational Church is significant for its associations with western settlement in the Hana area. Daniel Conde and his family were the first missionaries to permanently settle in Hana. The church has remained in continuous operation to the present and is one of the better maintained nineteenth-century stone churches on Maui.
