“I want people to stop for a moment and consider Hawaii's flowers with appreciation and wonder, especially those that are found only here in Hawaii. These islands are so full of fragrance and beauty that comes from our flowers, yet many of our flowering trees and plants have become rare and some are even on the verge of extinction. I invite visitors to the gallery to enjoy and appreciate them, while learning about the unique story of each species.”
The Smith Memorial Parsonage was built in 1928 in memory and honor of Rev. Dr. James and Melicent Smith, who arrived on this property as medical missionaries in 1842, and their descendants. The historic building and grounds are owned and maintained by Koloa Union Church and serve as the residence for the church's kahu (pastor). Proceeds from Alan Akana Gallery support the care and maintenance of the parsonage. Purchases and donations are appreciated!
“The parsonage is a special place and has played such an important role in the rich history of Kauai. The gallery is a way for me to support this historic building and the grounds upon which it stands.”
