About WaipahuLocated northwest of Pearl Harbor, Waipahu was the site of the giant O‘ahu Sugar Company Mill, the largest sugar processor on the island. Built in 1898, the mill operated until 1995. All that remains is the 170-foot high smokestack, a laboratory and the generator building. The sugar industry, once king in Hawai‘i, has all but disappeared.
