Waialua Gets It - Historic Preservation!

Updated: Aug 15, 2023

Our first community meeting was held at the recently restored plantation manager's office. Key Waialua community leaders, former employees who worked in the building, and nearby property owners attended. Stone Fish donated a gourmet brunch, Starbucks plenty of coffee, and the society honored Director Karen Inouye, donor for the office renovation, with a lei. Historic Hawaii Foundation's Executive Director, Kiersten Faulkner gave a brief presentation on 'historic preservation,' and lead docent Boyd Ready gave a short history of the building. Thanks to Councilman Weyer for sending his representative, Kelly Anaya, and to kumu hula Keith Awai for his encouraging closing remarks.
