Kualoa Sugarmill Ruins
Driving up to towards the North Shore of Oahu along Kamekameha Highway, I noticed remnants of what appeared to be an old building. Of course, I had to stop! They reminded me of sugarmill ruins that I’d photographed in other locations. Upon investigation, I discovered that these are the Kualoa Sugarmill Ruins (cir. 1863), a place rich in both royal ancient Hawaiian history and tragedy.
Interestingly, the landscape looks very much the same today as it did nearly 100 years ago.
