Step back in time to an authentic living history experience where our historical sites present you with a vivid and unforgettable story of Hawai’i's past. Come experience the 1880’s in the H.N. Greenwell Store Museum where the shopkeeper will help you “gather your supplies” for your trip up Kona mauka. The mingled aromas of coffee beans and oranges blend together again, just as they did over 100 years ago when goods were sold here in the heydey of Kona ranching.
Stroll through the award-winning 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 this place without feeling you have experienced a rare glimpse into Hawai`i’s colorful past.
