Erected in 1820, Mokuaikaua Church was the first Christian church to be established in the Hawaiian Islands. Originally it was a simple thatched building, intended only as an interim place to hold services. The proud building that now stands was built in 1836 out of crushed coral and lava rock. It is in perfect condition and still holds services. Inside the church is a model of the brig Thaddeus, which carried the first missionaries to Kona Town in the early 19th century.
