Inscription. The Hawaiian goddess Hi’iaka compared the peak of volcanic cone of Diamond Head to the dorsal fin of the ‘ahi fish, thus the Hawaiian name for Diamond Head is Le’ahi.

This site was once the Dillingham Home, the beachfront house of Harold Garfield Dillngham (1881- 1971). The coconut grove and seawall are the remnants of the residence.
