Maile Melrose is a lifelong resident and well-known historian of Kona. Always interested in Hawaiian history, she has been associated with Kona Historical Society for the past 20 years and has been leading KHS’ “world renowned” cemetery tours for several years. She is known to captivate her audience with tales of murder, arson and betrayal, as well as loyalty and love, which took place in the previously sleepy districts of Kona. This is the October portion of a community lecture series for 2012 that spotlights local and state speakers on a wide variety of cultural and historical subjects. Presented by Kona Historical Society, in cooperation with the County of Hawai’i, this lecture series is a gift from the Society to the community that has supported it for so long. Free of charge, it is open to all, residents and visitors alike.
