Church, Hauʻula, Oʻahu. Across Kamehameha Highway from Hauʻula Beach Park. Ruins of a Congregational church built on the summit of the hill in 1853. Coral blocks for the church walls were cut from the semicircular reef fronting the beach park. About 1897, the church was dismantled and the wood was used to built another church several miles away in Haleʻaha. Later, however, a new church constructed of wood was built next to the original church. Lit., victory.
