The Eisenhower House – KMC

The Eisenhower House is a cottage that sits on top of the Big Island of Hawaii in the Kilauea Military Camp (KMC) and housed General Dwight Eisenhower and family for a vacation after World War II. During my trip to the Big Island in January, I had the opportunity to meet with the Architectural Historian from the United States Army and tour this beautiful cottage.

From the flooring to the straps on the ceiling, this cottage was recently restored back to its original 1934 craftsman detail. A Preservation Honor Awards from Historic Hawaii Foundation was presented to U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii, Architectural historian Kenneth Hays, The Administrators & Staff of the Kīlauea Military Camp.
