Dis­cover Where the Train Stopped

101 Things to Do (Big Island) - - HILO/HAMAKUA COAST -

As you travel along High­way 19 on the HiloHa­makua Her­itage Coast about half­way from Hilo to Honoka‘a, keep an eye out for mile marker 25. If you’re paying at­ten­tion, you’ll no­tice a large con­crete side­walk that was once the load­ing plat­form for the old Lau­pa­hoe­hoe Train Sta­tion.

The Lau­pa­hoe­hoe Train Mu­seum and Vis­i­tors Cen­ter takes you on a trip back in time. In this hand­somely re­stored rail­road-em­ployee home, there are pho­tos, ar­ti­facts, mem­o­ra­bilia and sto­ries about the many is­land rail­roads, sugar plan­ta­tions and cul­tures that built the Big Is­land. This com­mu­nity-run, al­lvol­un­teer mu­seum is open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mon­dayFri­day, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Satur­day and Sun­day.
