Great, very old church in HI. Inside closed for repairs. But a beautiful site. Nice old cemetery enclosed with a fence. Some wonderful trees. Looking forward to seeing the inside when they are complete.

If you arrive in Kona on a cruise ship, you'll see this landmark and reflect on the fact that the ship Thaddeus sailed from Boston on a journey that took 164 days, carrying the first missionaries to the area, making it the first church in Kona. Hulihee Palace (summer home of the Hawaiian Royals) is across the street and also worth a visit. When you exit the tender, head for the steeple. Very easy walk.

Interesting place. Building is built of lava, coral, and native wood. Great place to see history and learn more about the settlement of the island.

What a interesting and historical church to see as you walk along Ali'i Drive. Be sure to stop and take a look as the bare essentials give it such a other worldly feel. You will not be disappointed.

Before visiting the palace across the street we were at the church and noticed that it was celebrating the 200th Anniversary of the founding. The church is not the original one but it is impressive. On Sunday after the services they have a history talk if you want to find out about the church and community.
