In 1927 a beautiful Natatorium dedicated to the honor of the 101 residents of the Hawaiian Territory who died in the Great War was opened.

Duke Kahanamoku, the Olympic Legend and Hawaii’s original Ambassador of Aloha, inaugurated the Natatorium.

Today the facility is a worn-out hulk. Hawaii residents approved a $11.5 million bill several years ago to refurbish this historic landmark. But local health and commercial disagreements prevented the project from going any further. Locals were outraged when elected officials stated that they were considering demolition.
