Next to the residence was the Olowalu Sugar Company, that began in 1864. This was a journey of Kamehameha V and was later on purchased by the Pioneer M ill. Then, constructed in the 1870’s, the sugar mill was used to refine the harvested sugar cane. Finally, the mill was taken down in 1933, however the ruins are still quite noticeable from the house. In 1922, the house was built for the supervisor and his family members. This was the neighborhood gathering place. The sugar plantation consisted of 700 acres, however, it was being cared for mostly by immigrants-with the last harvest in 1998.
When the Pioneer Mill sold the home, the new owners certainly made sure to keep the historical sites and offer community access. Now, the building is available for special events. The home offers a spacious lanai, looking out at a huge oceanfront lawn. This makes for the perfect backdrop for wedding ceremonies and receptions. Don’t worry, there is plenty of space for wedding preparation!
