This is a quick stop with a lot of history packed in. Get out, take the picture and read the legend.

When on the Big Island this is a good place to visit. We had a beautiful day to enjoy the area and view the statue. It's very easy to find.

We enjoyed seeing the statue of the king in his original form. It seemed to be a very popular spot for people to come take pictures with and also to view all of the history around the building.

We had an app that detailed the history of the Island as we drove along and this was one of the places that was described. The history behind the statue was what made it so do yourself a favor and read up on it as it really is interesting how the statue took on the look it did because of where it was made and it's journey to the Island. Especially since it is such an important part of the Island's history.

like many things of its "ilk" this is something worth stopping as you drive by, taking a pic, maybe reading about, but not worth driving out of your way. A magnet for selfies, obviously.

There are a lot of Kamehameha I statues in Hawaii but this is the first one erected. It is on the main street through the town and so you can 't miss it. Parking behind the building for anyone. Teh local police station and health center is located here also. King Kamehameha was born in this area thus the statue.

Showing off the Big Island to an old friend, having not been here in over 30 years. A bunch of obviously kanaka teenagers were surrounding it, so we offered to take their group photo. They were on a field trip from Lahainaluna School on Maui. Their teacher had them sit down while he told them the story of the statue and of their school’s connection to Kamehaeha. Then they stood, sang three Hawaiian songs including their school anthem and performed a hula accompanied by 5 ukuleles. We thanked them profusely. My Mother was kamaaina Maui, born in Paia, and my grandmother and great grandmother were both educators on Maui, so this was especially meaningful to us.

As the folks who maintain this statue noted in the interpretive comments at the statue, they renewed its condition not that long ago. The statue as beautiful and will presented. The information provided at this location was very helpful to understand it's significance.
