Lihue

Trip Planner USA  /  Hawaii  /  Kauai  /  Lihue
Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Lihue is the second largest town on the Hawaiian island of Kauai after Kapaa. As of the 2010 Census, the CDP had a total population of 6,455.HistoryIn ancient times, Lihue was a minor village. Līhue means "cold chill" in the Hawaiian language. Lihue is located in the ancient district of Puna, the southeastern coast of the island, and land division of Kalapaki. Royal Governor Kaikioewa officially made it his governing seat in 1837, moving it from Waimea; he gave the town its name after the land he owned on Oahu by the same name.With the emergence of the sugar industry in the 1800s, Lihue became the central city of the island with the construction of a large sugar mill. Early investors were Henry A. Peirce, Charles Reed Bishop and William Little Lee. The plantation struggled until William Harrison Rice built the first irrigation system in 1856.
