Kauai County, Hawaii Links
German Immigration in the1880's - Kaua'i, Hawaii
Hawaii County consists of the "big island" of Hawaii,
with over half the state's total land area. It is the site of Mauna Kea,
the tallest unbroken base-to-peak mountain in the World, and the famous
active volcanos Mauna Loa and Kilauea.
Honolulu County consists of the island of Oahu, and the
entire Hawaiian Archipelago northwest of Kauai County except the Midway
Islands, which are not part of the State of Hawaii. Honolulu County
includes the overwhelming majority of the state's population. It is also
the nation's longest county, extending over 1300 miles from Kure to the
southeastern tip of Oahu.
Kalawao County consisted of Father Damian's famous
Molokai Leper Colony which, due to the nature of the disease, allowed no
contact with the outside world and required a separate, independent county
administration, which was mostly merged into Maui County in the 1970's and
1980's. Now that Hansen's Disease (Leprosy) is treatable, the Colony is
closing and becoming Kalaupapa National Historic Park. This county does
still officially exist, however, and is the nation's smallest in area, at
13 square miles, and in population, currently around 60.
Maui County consists of the islands of Kahoolawe,
Lanai, Maui, and Molokai.
