One of the enjoyable activities is escorting visiting friends around Oahu. Recently, a family friend visited. We took her to Hawaii’s Plantation Village.

It’s located in Waipahu near the old sugar mill. For about 150 years sugar and pineapple cultivation were the cash crops of Hawaii. As they grew the need for workers grew. Workers were recruited from many different countries. To house them the plantations built wooden frame houses and barracks.

The village buildings reflect the different ethnic groups that came to Hawaii seeking a better life. There are still many people in Hawaii who grew up in the plantations. They work to preserve the history of that time.

One of those people was Charlie with his Pomeranian Tomo. He gave an enjoyable commentary on the different aspects of plantation life. Ask for him the next time you go.
