SENATOR FONG'S PLANTATION
The Senator Fong’s Plantation and Gardens are named after Senator Hiram Fong, and are located in Kaneohe, Oahu.
He was the first Asian American elected to the U.S. Senate in 1959. The senator purchased the 700-acre land in 1950 and as of today, much of the landscape is in its original form.
Prior to Senator Fong’s ownership, the land belonged to King Lunalilo. The plantation and gardens cover various types of terrain from near sea level to a plateau at 2,600 feet.
One of the goals of that large property is to preserve the Hawaiian landscape.
