Now mostly just a fun way to get to the waterfall, the Wilcox Tunnel was once considered an engineering marvel, and a crucial link link for the Koloa Sugar Mill to get their sugar cane to market. Built in 1948, the half-mile tunnel was constructed with WWII surplus military materials and tools to bore a shortcut allowing the sugar mill to connect to Nawiliwili Harbor. . . #kauaiatv #atv #kauaihistory #hawaii #wilcoxtunnel #kauai
A video showing the ‘Wailua Complex of Heiau’ Registered Historic Landmark plaque that is placed before the end of trail that leads to the cliff edge railing. Mahalo to those who recently cleared the area. It’s still in need of clearing and care, but can now walk all the way to the railing. #historicalplace #ancient #ancientsite #ancientcivilization #hawaiian #hawaiianculture #alii #bellstone #nationalhistoriclandmark #nationalhistoricsite #usa #government #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #kuleana #responsibility #whathappened #whoisresponsible #hawaiihistory #hawaiianhistory #kauaihistory #kauaihistoricalsociety #kauaimuseum #wailua #heiau #bellstone #kauai
The Wailua Complex of Heiau consists of several important sites including four heiau (places of worship) - Hikinaakala, Holoholoku, Malae, and Poliahu; Hauola pu'uhonua (a place of refuge); ancient petroglyphs; a royal birthstone; and a bellstone. #heiau #bellstone #pohaku #placeofrefuge #wailua #wailuaheiau #puuhonua #poliahu #hikinaakalaheiau #holoholoku #royalbirthstones #kauaihistory #ancientsite #historical #historicalplace #hawaiian #hawaiianculture #hawn #nationalhistoriclandmark #nationalparkservice #landmark #neglected #overgrown #kauai

This man, Captain James Cook, changed the course of Hawaiian history. You be the judge. His first landing in Hawaii was at Waimea Town, here on Kauai.
Rusted reminder of Kauai’s sugar history. The McBryde Sugar Mill in Koloa began production in 1898 and closed in 1996. Sorry to get ‘touristy,’ but the sugar industry is a major part of Hawaiian history and the first commercial sugar plantation in the Hawaiian Islands started just down the road in the small town of Koloa. A must photo op. #koloa #poipu #kauai #kauaihistory #mcbrydesugarcompany #koloasugarmill #mcbrydenationaltropicalbotanicalgardens #hawaiisugar #oldkauai #kauaiphotographer #kauaiphotography #koloaphotographer
Have you seen our collection of vintage milk jugs from Rice Dairy? Tucked away in a cabin in Kokee for years, we acquired these last year, and now you can have a piece of Kauai history! #ricedairy #milkjug #vintagemilkjug #lihue #kauaihistory #littleshop #antiquemilkjug #dairy #glassware #williamhyderice #lihuedairy #oldkauai
Kauai is blessed to have so much history and beauty to explore, so often right in our own backyard. . . #kauaiatv #kauai #koloa #hawaii #wilcoxtunnel #kauaihistory #atvtours #offroad
Ive always loved lighthouses. Not only are they usually located in the most gorgeous locations but their purpose of guiding ships through the sea has always been so poetic. There's more to Kauai than just beaches and mountains. There's history. 💡 DID YOU KNOW? The Kilauea Lighthouse construction began in July 1912 and the light was dedicated on May 1, 1913. The Kīlauea Lighthouse can be seen in Disney's animated film Lilo & Stitch, and it plays a more important role in the sequel, Stitch! The Movie. 🌊 #kilauea #kilauealighthouse #kauai #hawaii #lighthouse #lighthouses #lighthousephotography #oceancliff #seacliff #oceanphotography #kauaihistory #historicalplaces #scenery #beautifulviews #beautifulview #oceanview #oceanviews #thetravelingpirate #travelphotography #traveler #nomad #seetheworld #worldtraveler #travelingcanadian #seethesites #didyouknow #funfacts #facts @travel.temptations @travellingthroughtheworld @travelgramaroundtheworld #travelstoriesworld @incredible @sceneittravel

The Makauwahi Cave! It’s a sink hole that was drained out where archaeologists found a huge amount of artifacts and remains that were incredibly preserved! Be still my nerdling heart ❤️❤️ disappointed I couldn’t get more video... the actual cave itself is super dark, but man! What would I give to be able to help excavate this baby 😍😍 #luckywelivehi #luckywelivehawaii #kauai #makauwahicave #kauaihistory #ancientpreservation #archaeologicalsite

The view through my favorite window! This tiny little arch of a window, located at our storefront was the original Kilauea Post Office pick-up window. For many decades Kilauea Plantation workers received and sent their mail through this portal. How Cool is that!!!

Walter McBryde left Kukuiolono for the people of Kaua'i in perpetuity...he had the forsight of what was to become of Kaua'i lands through the years...eventually outsiders blocking off lands from public use and native gathering...he wanted to leave public lands free and open to the locals....low cost golf, the Japanese & Hawaiian gardens, farm lands (he blocked sales to opportunists) and so many other investments providing sustainability to these public trusts...unknown to most. Walter McBryde's resting place is at Kukuiolono. #mahalo #kauaihistory #philanthropy #missionaries #gift #makana #restingplace #kauailife #kukuiolono #mcbryde #momi #keenankeuma #keonimahuiki #debbybrun #rip_jrbrun #kauaibraddajoe #kalaheo #kauai

Bamboo pole fishing, 1936. The girl in this photo is E. Alison Kay (1928 – 9 June 2008) was a malacologist, environmentalist, and professor at the University of Hawaiʻi. She was born in Eleele and grew up on the island of Kauai in the Territory of Hawaii, graduated from Punahou School in 1946, and obtained her first B.A. from Mills College in 1950. She then went on to earn another B.A. in 1952 and an M.A. in 1956 from Cambridge University as a Fulbright scholar before returning to the University of Hawaiʻi, where she completed her dissertation in 1957. She is best known for her work, "Hawaiian Marine Shells" (1979).

Hanapepe Swinging Bridge... built in the early 1900's as the only way for residents to cross the river between the valley and the town of Hanapepe. It sways a LOT 😂😂 #kauaihistory #explore #themoreyouknow @fknruss
A little bit of history. Fort Elizabeth, built by the Russians in the early 1800's. They picked the spot for it's defense point and access to the ocean. It wasn't used very long, but some of the remains, such as the stone wall and rock steps leading into it, still stand. #fortelizabeth #kauaihistory #alwayslearning @fknruss
St. Raphael's Catholic Church, Koloa, Kauai - First Communion. Date unknown.
People at Hanapepe Art Walk went to check out the historic Hanapepe Swinging Bridge. It doesn't actually swing, but rather just shimmies/jiggers in place when you stomp on it. 😅 🌉 #Hanapepe #HanapepeSwingingBridge

My office last night. Volunteering and helping share history helps me memorize it. #Repost with @Repostlyapp Under the monkeypod. Grown in early 1900s these trees are massive giving a huge canopy of shade. This one survived and lives in a river bed always fed when it rains. Having so much water it grew it's branches rather than giving height. Now it hovers over the #OldKoloaTownCenter . The breeze is a beautiful occasion, for the leaves fall like ballerinas with yellow hula skirts. #konadistrict #koloa #kauaihistory #koloaplantationdays #thewestkauai #livemusic #cello #ukulele #lyricsist #wine #bringdinner #mylilfatgecko #strokes
