Near Papaikou in Hawaii County, Hawaii — Hawaiian Island Archipelago (Pacific Ocean)
When our Founder and his tireless helpers were first clearing this area, they discovered this olden and dignified gravesite. We have never been able to authenticate the origin, although some old-timers believe the gravesite may have belonged to a caretaker's family, since a cement-made gravesite would not have pre-dated the 1900's.
Our commitment is to forever preserve this resting place with the utmost care and respect.
