STARADVERTISER / MARCH 9, 1976

Kahuku Sugar Mill soon will mark its second opening, this time as a major North Shore visitor attraction. The old iron machinery is the same as for its prior debut, 85 years ago. And as in the past, it will be operating, although in simulated production. Besides shopping and dining, the new Kahuku Sugar Mill will of- fer a “World of Sugar” tour, beginning with a documentary on plantation life in the 1930s shown in a multiscreen theater, followed by a narrated walk among the mill’s workings. Alexander & Baldwin shut the mill in 1971 for economic reasons, and it appeared destined to be scrapped before developer Black- field Hawaii stepped in with a plan to restore and repurpose the mill.
