Visiting the Leprosy hospital in Kalihi a hundred and fifty years ago, 1866.

[Found under: “MA KE KAUOHA.”]

The person and people perhaps who wish to go and see the Leprosy Hospital at Kalihi [Halemai Lepera ma Kalihi], and their friends there.

Therefore, I say to everyone, the hours between 2 o’clock and 4 in the afternoon, on Tuesdays and Fridays, are set aside to go and see; and no one will be allowed during other times except for the Clergy going there to see the patients [poe mai].

By order of the Board of Health [Papa Ola].

T. C. Heuck,
Secretary of the Board of Health.

Office of the Board of Health, H., June 11, 1866.

One thought on “Visiting the Leprosy hospital in Kalihi a hundred and fifty years ago, 1866.

  1. the hospital was still there in 1926 when Elks Lodge 616 took over sponsoring the resident Boy Scout troop # 12 at the DOE school – Mt. Happy. Other troops visited them thru fence. After Dec 7 the troop & all patients evacuated as too close to Pearl Harbor. See http://elkslodge616.org/about/history/scouting/a-special-troop/ Could not have told their story w/out good record keeping by Boy Scouts Hawaii offices. Mahalo Anita Manning
