Mission Stations

Mission Stations Over the course of a little over 40-years (1820-1863 - the “Missionary Period”,) the ABCFM operated in the Hawaiian Islands; an early effort was to find important communities (generally near ports and aliʻi residences) as “stations” for the regional church and school centers across the Hawaiian Islands. By 1850, eighteen mission stations had been established; six on Hawaiʻi, four on Maui, four on Oʻahu, three on Kauai and one on Molokai. Meeting houses were constructed at the stations, as well as throughout the district. Initially constructed as the traditional Hawaiian thatched structures; they were later made of wood or stone.
