Hilo: Images of America

Hilo: Images of America

In Stock

Hilo is the second largest city in Hawaii and the seat of government for the Big Island of Hawaii. Giant trees shade its avenues, and a string of picturesque beach parks line the crescent-shaped shoreline of Hilo Bay. It was from here that Kamehameha the Great launched his fleet of war canoes to conquer the Hawaiian Islands and later, where whaling ships and schooners dropped their cargoes of sailors, missionaries, and sundry goods.

Two majestic and scenic mountains, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, overlook the city and the bay. Hilo itself holds many stories of ancient gods, kings and queens, the missionaries who came to challenge both, immigrants who came to work the sugar cane fields, and numerous destructive tsunamis that Mother Nature sent to challenge them. Century old buildings remain, as do the descendants of merchants that prospered here. It’s a charming city with a timeless style and resilient population, ever-vigilant against the potential of another destructive wave.
