The Volcano House hotel has been been open, in one form or another, since 1846, when the first grass house was built on the rim of Kilauea Crater. The first wooden structure went up in 1877—long before Hawaii Volcanoes National Park was even established on the Big Island in 1916—with a stone hearth dedicated to Pele that burned continuously for next 133 years.
