  1. I would like to know why nothing has been done to preserve the Hedemann Estate in Maunawili Valley since it has been deemed an historic property and needs renovation? Also, does anyone have history of this being another of Queen Emma’s homes. It is written, her cousin Lydia Liliuokalani came to visit her on one occasion and as she sat in her chair on a small mound between Emma’s home and the home that was the final residence of Claude and Ruth Kakalia’s ‘ohana did by chance spot two lovers parting ways, thus inspiring her to write the lyrics to the famed Aloha ‘oe.

    • Since 2000, when the Weinberg Foundation (HRT) purchased the property, the KHS (Paul Brennan and Chuck Burrows) has made numerous attempts to have discussions with the owners about caretaking, leasing, or owning the property on which the Irwin House (“Hedemann House”) sits. Alas, the owners broke off our talks about 5 years ago, saying they wished to pursue their own economic interests with the property. During all of this time, however, they have permitted KHS to have access to the property by allowing tours to take place. Each year about a dozen tours have occurred.
