The Waioli Mission Hall was established by American Christian missionaries in 1834. A pole and thatch meeting house was constructed by Hawaiians on this site, in anticipation of the arrivals of the missionaries. The first meeting house was destroyed by fire, and a second was destroyed by wind. Following the destruction of the two earlier buildings, the congregation finished this timber frame in 1841. It is the oldest surviving church building on the island of Kauai.

The building design, distinguished by its lanais and steep double pitched roof, is a notable adaption of New England building traditions to Hawaiian culture and climate. This building served as the mission church until the adjacent 1912 Waioli church sanctuary was constructed to accommodate the growing congregation. The building has been restored after surviving severe damage from Hurricane Iniki in 1992. It is listed on both the State and National Registers of Historic Places.

Waioli Mission Hall has served its church and community in various activities for the diverse ministries of the Waioli Hui?ia Church and the glory of God.
