Did you know there are only four commissioned statues of King Kamehameha? The four are located at:
- Downtown Honolulu, Oahu
- North Kohala, Hawaii’s Big Island
- National Statuary Hall, Washington D.C
- Hilo, Hawaii’s Big Island
So what was this I spied at the Castle junction on the Windward side?!?
Sure looks like a statue of King Kamehameha…
Heh, yes, this non-commissioned replica was erected on Friday, August 2, 2013 for a Hawaii Five-0 filming the following day. I might have seen Scott Caan in front of the statue but couldn’t quite tell (except for that hair). By Saturday afternoon, this fifth statue of King Kamehameha was already gone but an urban legend.
