Two Great Sites ~ One Unique Story!


Visit our Kalukalu site with its historic H.N. Greenwell Store Museum and the Portuguese Stone Oven. Both programs share the rich history of Hawaii through the eyes of Kona families and farmers who built this unique area.

Stroll through the Kona Coffee Living History Farm that tells the story of Kona’s coffee pioneers during the years 1926-1945.  It is America’s only living history coffee farm where you may “talk story” with costumed historians and discover the history behind Kona’s gourmet crop.
You won’t leave these programs without feeling you have experienced a rare glimpse into Hawaii’s colorful past.

Hours 9:00 am – 4:30 pm Monday – Saturday (closed Sunday)

We look forward to your visit! Stop by at any time during our open hours and view our current exhibit, observe classes and open studios in progress, and experience our creative haven in Holualoa.
