Old Folks’ Home for the Whites, 1912.

A HOME FOR THE ELDERLY WHITE PEOPLE

With the $10,000 readied today, the King’s Daughters [Kaikamahine a ka Moi] are looking for additional funds to total $50,000; that sum of money, once accumulated is intended for the building of a home for the elderly, frail white people, and that they be taken care of there until they find rest, just like the Lunalilo Home is today; it will be a perfect place for those people when they grow frail and can’t care for themselves.

That association owns a piece of land in Kaimuki on Waialae Avenue, between 4th Avenue and 5th; and on that property will be built that home, and it is a splendid spot for this new home.

At a meeting of that association held last week, the building design drawn by H. L. Kerr was approved, and it is believed that when the building is completed, it will be a home that will add to the beauty of Kaimuki in the future.
