Haleiwa, a Pictorial History


Download and read chapter 1 now!

historic_imgHale‘iwa, a Pictorial History captures the spirit of this one-hundred-year-old plantation town on the North Shore of O‘ahu. It traces Hale‘iwa all the way from the thatched-hut roots of the original Polynesian settlers, through the early years of the Hawai‘ian kingdom, into the fields of Waialua Sugar Plantation, into the elegant drawing rooms of the Hale‘iwa Hotel, right up to the emergence of Hale‘iwa Town as today’s surfing capital of Hawai‘i … arguably the world's “surf city.”

This story is told with photos that are, in some cases, almost one hundred years old. Alongside these historic photos, brilliant state-of-the-art color photography brings present-day Hale‘iwa and the North Shore of O‘ahu to vibrant life. The authors have tried hard to capture the sight and feel of a town and an area that represents “country” to the people of O‘ahu.
