Vote to Save a Hawaii Landmark

Hawaii is one of the five final states in the “Save A Landmark” program sponsored by the Hampton hotel chain, and three landmarks in the Aloha State are in the running for preservation assistance:

Since its launch in 2000, the “Save A Landmark” program has provided more than $2 million and thousands of hours toward the preservation of over 40 “historical, fun and cultural” landmarks across the country, as well as in Canada and Latin America.

This year brings a focus on “All American Landmarks,” and support has already been pledged toward attractions including Abraham Lincoln’s boyhood home in Kentucky and The Neon Museum in Las Vegas. The three Hawaii landmarks are up against mainland contenders like the Beavertail Lighthouse in Rhode Island and the Idaho Potato Museum.

Vote now! Voting will be open through Nov. 30, and the winning landmark will be announced on Dec. 2.

  1. Ryan,

    I voted for Falls of Clyde. We toured the ship on our last visit and saw the deterioration. She needs a major dry dock visit for preservation. We’ll have a post with video soon.

    I concur with comment above, the Kilauea Lighthouse has a special charm and quintessential essence of Hawaii worth preserving.

    Crazy, I need to travel more within Hawaii. I don’t know ANY of these landmarks!!!

  5. Just posted our article and video of our tour of the Falls of Clyde. She is in dire need of repair to keep her for the next generation. The video shows both the deterioration and elegance.
