Kauhola Point Lighthouse, Old Kohala Mill Road, Halaula, Hawaii County, HI
Significance: The Kauhola Point Light House is associated with the history and development of navigational aids in Hawaii. It is a good example of a light house in Hawaii, being one of nine major light houses constructed in the islands between 1909 and 1933. It reflects its period of construction and Pacific location in its use of materials, method of construction, craftsmanship, and design.
The old Lighthouse was taken down. I’ll get some pics of the new one, it’s not very interesting though.
Navigational aids in the United States are operated by the U.S. Coast Guard, and the lights in Hawai’i are maintained by the Fourteenth Coast Guard District based in Honolulu. Ownership (and sometimes operation) of historic lighthouses has been transferred to local authorities and preservation organizations in many cases.
