Yes, there's a grass hut near the Waioli Tea Room that, according to legend, RLS used as his Hawaii home.

A curiosity question! Did RLS have a physical presence on the land that is now Stevenson Middle School or is it named after him due to his association with Hawaii? I should've stated my initial question a bit clearer, to include physical presence!

An interesting stab, Lurkah...interesting enough that I googled it and, basically, came up with nothing to support the idea. Seems plausible, tho', doesn't it?! I did find one hit that might allude to this possibility but the page no longer exists and it's not cached. The google hit states:
"KeepMedia | Rough Guides Travel: Honolulu
... English sailor, John Young (1745–1835), was known as Olohana to the Hawaiians after his naval cry of "All hands on deck." Tusitala Street: Named after author ...

Miulang

I'm thinking there must be some public elementary schools farther west in Alaska than Kekaha Elementary...the towns of Kotzebue and Nome, by themselves are farther west than than the entire island of Kaua'i...then there are all the Aleutian Island communities. Is the key word of this question public? Are all the elementary schools in far-western Alaska private?

This link seems to refute Kekaha's claim:

It seems that an institution such as an elementary school really should get their facts straight, as an example to their students, before claiming they are something they may not actually be. That is, if in fact, Kekaha Elementary bills itself as the most western public elementary school in the US.

I hope I didn't come off as if I was trying to show-up Miulang, which I most definitely was not. I have little reason to doubt what she has to say about Hawai'i, she being a kama'aina o 'aina. In looking back at the posts I've hung in this thread, it may appear that way, and if that is the case, I do apologize to her.

What I am surprised is that a school could overlook some fairly obvious facts about where they are, longitude-wise, in relation to Alaska. One of my favorite trivia facts about Alaska is that not only is it the USA's most western state (not western in the yee-haw sense, Kimo, but longitude), but it is technically the USA's most eastern state, with a small portion of its land existing on the other side of the International Date Line.

I would have figured that a school, of all entities, would at least try to verify the fact that they were the "western most" of schools in the US before naming themselves as claimant to the title. I'm under the impression here, after reviewing Kekaha Elementary's web-site, that it, appears to be a typical Internet school project, and substantiating the facts presented on the web-pages may have been secondary to the overall project, which may have been primarily getting the web-site up and running online.

It's Hale Pai, at Lahainaluna, which is the oldest high school west of the Mississippi. I think Lahainaluna is also the only high school alma mater sung in a language other than English in the whole US, and one that has actually been made into a popular song by Keali'i Reichel! :)

Still waiting for the answer to this one. It takes a 4-wheel drive vehicle to visit this what's left of this site. The sugar plantation in Koloa was the first successful mill. This one (and the town in which it was located) was said by locals to be jinxed because the haole owners tore down a heia'u. Probably one of the only times a superstition came true! :eek:

Holy Ghost (http://www.alternative-hawaii.com/drives/maui/ump7.htm) Catholic Church was built by Portuguese immigrants in Kula, Maui. It has a very distinctive "octagonal" shape that supposedly represents the king's crown (you can even see the shiny roof from Central Maui on a sunny day). Also has been called "The Wedding Cake" church. But it says it was built in 1894, so the answer might not be correct. :o

oh yea:
Portuguese immigrants built the Holy Ghost Mission in Maui's Upcountry in 1894. The church's unusual octagonal structure is the only one of its kind built during the 19th century in Hawaii. Its altar and 14 Stations of the Cross were brought from Austria in about 1897 and are priceless examples of museum quality 19th century ecclesiastical art. Hand-carved, gilded and painted more than a century ago by a master European craftsman, the words on the stations are in Old Portuguese. This is the only artwork of its kind in Hawaii.

Sounds like you're talking about the Maunalei Sugar Company at Keomuku on Lanai (destroyed a heiau in order to build a railway along the coast), but it can't be that one because it was established in 1898 while the one in Koloa was established in 1835.

Moku'ula in Lahaina.
Moku'ula (http://www.mokuula.com/archive/photo.shtml) was the royal residence of alii nui Kauikea'ouli who as an adult became Kamehameha III. One of Kamehameha III's most significant legacies was the creation of the Great Mahele (http://www.cr.nps.gov/history/online_books/kona/history5g.htm). If he had not done that, Hawai'i would look like a very different place. On the grounds of Moku'ula was a spring, Mokuhinia, which has since been covered up. Several Maui organizations are raising funds to restore Moku'ula. By what name is this place known today?

Auntie, I haven't hung out at San Souci Beach in decades but do overlook it occasionally when dining at the Hau Tree Lanai at the Kaimana Beach Hotel.

SSB used to be the favored beach of the young and beautiful flight attendants and locals. Maybe it still is...dunno! It was definitely more locals than tourists. There was a great mix of people including families and, yes, gays but it was predominantly a singles beach. San Souci by day...Nicolas Nicholas by night! However, I think the favored gay beach has been and still is Queen's Surf Beach. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I think 'dig me' pertains more to 'look at what a beautiful, human specimen I am' than anything else.

OK, this sat long enough. I had to do some research and could only find one reference.

Pearl Harbor Road was later renamed Nimitz Hwy.

The reference was in a history of St. Philomena Church, Damon Tract, which was originally a "mission" of St. Elizabeth Church, Aiea. (St. Elizabeth is the church I grew up in.)

http://www.stphilomena.net/history1.htm

The second page of the history has a great map and photos of the area, before it became the "Aiport Industrial Area."

http://www.stphilomena.net/history2.htm

And check the photo of Salt Lake, when it was really a lake!

Is it Waikanaloa?

By the way, the source that I looked at stated that scuba divers had reported that no fresh or saltwater life existed in that cave, but I have a very clear memory from a long time ago of seeing huge reddish-blue tilapia swimming around in there.

Correct! and the first time I went as a kid, I saw fish too! I also wanted so badly to go through the small entrance at the back of the pond that I told my Dad "Let's get a long rope and tie it to me and I'll tell you what's back there!".

This is probably wrong, but everytime I see a globe sculpture, I think of Brigham Young University. When I was in school in Utah, we'd make forays down to BYU in Provo and at the main entrance, there was a sign that said, "The World Is Our Campus". We Utes would turn that around and say, "The Campus Is Our World" because we considered BYU to be very insular and provincial. :D So maybe this globe is on the BYU-Hawai'i campus at La'ie?
