Hands on History at the Kona Coffee Living History Farm

Every Wednesday & Friday

Kona Historical Society's Kona Coffee Living History Farm in Captain Cook will be having "Hands On History" activities every Wednesday & Friday that help visitors explore Kona's history in a deeper and more sensory way. Participation is free with the purchase of admission to the farm.
