Highway 11, West Hawaii
The Historical Society is housed in the old Greenwell Store. The structure was built in the late 1800's by H.N. Greenwell, a rancher and businessman. The building was constructed from native stones and lime mortar made from burned coral. Due to its rare construction, the store was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1976 the Kona Historical Society was founded to collect and preserve information about the history of the Kona district. Inside the store, a small museum and extensive library of information about the region is maintained. The Historical Society provides walking tours of the nearby Kailua Village and Kona Coffee Living History Farm.
