These 9 Awesome Places In Hawaii Are Sadly In Danger Of Being Gone
From the Hawaiian monarchy and ancient Hawaiian practices to Christian missionaries and involvement in World War II, Hawaii is full of amazing history – much of which occurred long before we officially became a state. And with this amazing history comes a plethora of historic buildings and places that are unfortunately often in danger of being demolished.
Luckily, every year, the Historic Hawai’i Foundation, the state Historic Preservation Division, and Honolulu Magazine team up to create a list of the most endangered places throughout the islands. The following nine places were on the list in 2014 and 2015.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
The hope is that, with education and awareness, our communities can step up in order to protect and preserve these state treasures – either by volunteering with local preservation groups or even by donating money. Do you know of any other historic buildings in Hawaii that are at risk of being destroyed?
