Notes
Survey number HABS HI-521
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N1039).
Significance: The buildings are significant for their association with the development of BAldwin Packers, Inc., a major pineapple producer that employed about 500 workers when the store was built, and with the development of the pineapple industry on Maui. The Honolua Store and Warehouse are also significant for their role in sustaining the camps for Hawaiian, Japanese, and Filipino plantation workers. The Honolua Store is a good example of the type of store which served rural communities during the plantation era. It has been operated continuously as a general store since its construction in 1929. It was the primary source of supplies for the surrounding community during the time of the Honolua Plantation, and it has remained an important feature of the area as the transition was made from plantation to tourism and vacation rentals. Today the Honolua Store serves local workers and vacation visitors with meals, groceries, and other merchandise.
