KHS LogoKaua‘i is visually stunning and rich in history from ancient to modern times. Stone works and taro terraces tell its history and you’ll also find it in letters among missionary families, in milling stones saved from early sugar plantation days and in the first-hand accounts of Kauaians who recall defensive barbed-wire fences strung on beaches during World War II.
