Preserving Honouliuli: An Internment Camp Almost Forgotten

Jun 12, 2014

The story of Honouliuli Internment Camp nearly vanished. The site remained hidden from view in an Oahu gulch for nearly 60 years, until it was re-discovered by the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii in 2002. Now it’s under consideration to be designated as a national monument or historic site. It’s on private land owned by Monsanto. HPR’s Molly Solomon got a private tour and has this report.

The National Park Service recently wrapped up a series of public meetings across the islands. They’ll be holding a virtual one online next Tuesday. More information is available here.
