Main Functions

Once called "The Supervisor's Residence" and "The White House", the structure was built in 1929 and was once the residence of the Hawaii State Hospital director. This is the only original wood frame building to survive. This two-story Four Square house sits on a lava rock post and pier foundation and has a steep hipped roof with overhanging eaves with exposed rafter tails. The clapboard clad dwelling features a right of center, single story portico with a hipped roof supported by square, paneled posts. An original lanai with transom windows extends from the right rear.
