With the recent local uprising to the potential re-development of the area just above the Hanalei River mouth in Princeville, we thought it would be nice to take a trip back in time.

Here are just a few images of the Hanalei Ridge when it was home to the Hanalei Plantation and Club Med Resorts back in the 1960s and 70s. More photos can be found here.
