The Kauai Historical Society is located in Lihue, in the Historic County Building, and was established in 1914 with a mission to actively collect, preserve, and disseminate the oral, written, and pictorial history of Kaua'i and Ni'ihau for the benefit of the public.

The KHS offers a huge collection of historical items that includes over 12,000 photographs, over 4,000 books, over 3,000 maps, as well as various articles, newspapers, and plantation records.

The various items on display are open to the public but if you're doing a research project you'll need to make an appointment to access their larger collection.
