Old Hokuloa (morning star) Church near the beach in Puako, South Kohala, Big Island, Hawaii. "The Hokuloa Church was erected through the inspiration of Christian faith instilled in Hawaiians by the Rev. Lorenzo Lyons (1807-1886), an American Congregational missionary who came to this island in 1832. The church structure now stands as a tribute to his labors which began in the village of Puako about 1835.

After taking two years to build, the building was dedicated on March 21, 1860. The building served as a house of worship until the termination of the Puako sugar plantation in 1914. Following that date, the landmark fell into disrepair and near ruin until an attempt to restore the Church was undertaken in 1966. In 1990 the building was completely restored and a new congregation was established."
