What We Do.
The society maintains two historic sites and the Jean Greenwell Archives, which boasts the largest photograph collection on the Big Island: over 140 maps; many rare and out-of-print books; historical records including manuscripts, pamphlets and oral history interviews; and films and videotapes of Kona.
Why We Do It.
The Kona Historical Society is a community based, non-profit organization that was founded in 1976 to collect, preserve and share the history of the Kona districts supported by over 1000 members internationally.
How We Do It.
The Kona Historical Society depends on our members and friends for essential support through annual gifts or endowments. When you donate to Kona Historical Society, you support our educational programs, free events and lectures, preservation, and stories.
