Hawaiʻi has gone through many industries, sugar being a significant one.  

The sugar era may be long gone, but its plantations played a large part in the evolution of Hawaiʻi’s economy.

Oʻahu Sugar Company was a part of the islands’ sugar industry for nearly 100 years.

Twenty-five years ago, on April 9, 1995, Oʻahu Sugar Company closed its books as Waipahu Sugar Mill processed its final cane.
