This program has been cancelled for the health and saftey of our staff, volunteers, and you our audience. We are working on rescheduling the program and will let you know when that information is available.
Big Island is often in the news, but the west side of the island gets little notice, even though we know there has been a human presence there for thousands of years. Aaron Person will explore this little known part of the island from its first inhabitants to the cottagers of the 1880s and the Scandinavian immigrants who moved in after them. “Oakwood” contains some of the oldest structures still in continuous use on either side of the island and has some fascinating stories to tell.
