~~<p>Question: What is the story on the old burned-out building in front of Crawford Convalescent Home on the North Shore? It looks like an old church. There is a similar, smaller building across the street. I've wondered for over 50 years!</p>
<p>Answer: The buildings, just north of Velzyland, were part of the Wai&shy;ale&lsquo;e Training School for Boys, which eventually was relocated to Windward Oahu and became the Koolau Boys Home. In 1961 it merged with the girls reformatory and became the Hawaii Youth Correctional Facility.</p>
