Kauhola Point Lighthouse in Hawi, a former sugar mill town. As the sugar industry in Hawaii began to collapse in the early 70s, Kohala Sugar Mill announced it was closing it doors, putting about 500 employees out of work. The town survived and today thrives as an art community and tourist trap. Almost all of the remnants of the mill, just west of the lighthouse, are gone.
