About Volcano Village

Known for its unrivaled picturesque landscape, the village of Volcano is located in the southeastern part of the Big Island of Hawaii. The town is perched high above the ocean, at an elevation of 3,750 feet. Volcano is part of the lush tropical rain forest common to the wetter side of the Island of Hawaii. The area is rife with the spiky, vibrant red Lahu'a Blossoms of the Ohi'a trees and the thick, verdant forests of Hapu'u fern trees. Beautiful purple flowering plants called Princess Flowers or Glory Bushes proliferate throughout the town, although they are not indigenous and often encroach on other native plants.

The 56.7 square-mile town is less than a mile from the entrance to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and very close to Kilauea volcano's northeast rim. Surrounded by a number of forest preserves, Volcano is about 30 miles southwest of Hilo and 100 miles southeast of Kona.

Volcano is a small town with just about 2,600 residents. While less than 10 percent of the town's population is made up of Native Hawaiians or Pacific Islanders, more than 20 percent of the town's residents are descended from two or more ethnic groups.

Volcano's history is shaped in large part by its proximity to the Kilauea volcano. Believed by ancient native Hawaiians to be the home of the goddess Pele, Kilauea's summit was the site of cultural and religious activities. While it doesn't appear that the Volcano Village area was inhabited in ancient times, Hawaiians likely traveled through the area to reach Kilauea's summit to make offerings to Pele. The area also may have been along the route of travel from Hilo and Ka'u.

As Western cultures began to move into the Hawaiian Islands, development of the Volcano area increased. Lovely Plantation-style homes from the early 1900s make up a small historic district in Volcano and give a glimpse of the area's more recent history.
