No trespassing at Kamehameha summer palace
The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) is adding barriers around Kaniakapupu Ruins, also known as King Kamehameha's Summer Palace.
The 175-years-old ruins have been trespassed and vandalized multiple times in recent years. This past Valentines Day-- someone carved a heart into the structure. So-- Low-impact
"It's important to emphasize the site is closed. It's not meant to be accessed. But we know people are still going because we've seen the vandalism. We felt that it's important to arm them with information that helps them understand the significance of the site," a DLNR official said.
King Kamehameha's Summer Palace has been on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places Since 1986.
