Hawaii / North America / Pic of the Week

“Pic of the Week”, March 18, 2017: Old Sugar Mill, Koloa, Kauai


The history of Hawaii’s development over the past two centuries largely centered around agriculture, especially of sugar cane and pineapple.  Sadly, these crops are not produced much in Hawaii any more (with the exception of sugar cane on Maui and pineapples for local consumption).  But the legacy of the old sugar towns lingers and you can see remnants of them when you travel around the islands, like this abandoned sugar mill in Koloa (near the south shore of Kauai).
