Description:

The Waimea Sugar Mill Camp Museum located in Kauai is an authentic sugar plantation. Exploring on the Plantation Lifestyles Tour you’ll see the ruins of an old sugar mill along with personal gardens, and worker’s homes. Hawaii has a large sugar plantation history where a lot of the workers actually moved to Hawaii for work, starting a large community.

You’ll see an engine built in 1928 called Engine 7162. Purchased in 1945 it powered the irrigation ditches which are a large part of the sugar plantation and quite a necessary one. You’ll find this piece of history in great condition.

The soil had to be cleared of lava rock when it first began, which was a hard task but one that proved to be prosperous for Hans Faye who leased the land. Later when the sugar plantation began to fail they sold it, but still had ownership of the land.

This museum is located near cottages that you can enjoy a nice and quiet stay at. These cottages are restored ones actually used in this historic location.
