Hale Paʻahao Prison information
A remnant of the whaling era, this coral stone jail was built in 1852 and looks much as it did 150 years ago. One of the tiny reconstructed cells displays a list of arrests in 1855. The top three offenses were drunkenness (330 arrests), ‘furious riding’ (89) and lascivious conduct (20). Other transgressions of the day included profanity, aiding deserting sailors and drinking ʻawa (kava).
