2. The Story of Kolōa: A Kaua‘i Plantation Town. 2001 book by Donald Donohugh. “There is a story often heard on Kaua‘i that Spouting Horn was dynamited around 1920 by the order of McBryde [Sugar Company] officials so the spray would not damage the sugar cane immediately inland. ... After reviewing these [sources and photographs], the only conclusion possible is that no dynamiting took place and the story is false.”
