History

The HOVE development consisted of 10,697 1-acre (4,000 m2) lots north of the Hawaii Belt Road in the western Kaʻū District. The terrain varies from rugged lava fields to ohiʻa trees and other vegetation. Elevation ranges from about 1,500 ft (460 m). up to the 5,000-foot (1,500 m) level. Initial sales began in the late 1950s. The original developer of HOVE was the Crawford Oil Company. Later, other subdivisions were put in place downslope of the highway. In the early 1980s a service station and a hardware store were built. In January, 2004, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park purchased the nearby property, previously known as Kahuku Ranch.[1]

In 1989 the Ocean View Town Center was developed and the Ocean View Road Maintenance Corporation began an extensive rebuilding program of the roads. Shortly thereafter the Ocean View Development Corporation started a new market which included a laundromat and restaurant. Ocean View now has two shopping centers.[2]

Ocean View has a post office with the ZIP code of 96737.[3]
