Kualapuu Post Office

-A A +A
1945. 308 Farrington Ave.

Utilizing double-wall construction, the post office blends in simply with its plantation environs thanks to its tongue-and-groove siding and shallow hipped roof. The postboxes are outdoors, protected by a recessed lanai, a common post office feature in Hawaii.
