Free Ohana Train Day

Saturday, April 15th, 2023 at 10:00 am1:00 pm


Grove Farm museum is celebrating Paul Isenberg’s birthday with a FREE Ohana Train Day!

It will be on Saturday, April 15, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
at the Locomotive Learning Park on Haleko Road (across from the old Lihue mill) and
at Grove Farm museum on Nawiliwili Road – both in Lihue.

Born in Hanover, Germany on April 15, 1837 Paul Isenberg came to the Hawaiian Islands in 1858.  He became a prominent early Kauai sugar planter and owner of Koloa and Lihue Sugar Plantations.  Mr. Isenberg was a main advocate for a plantation railroad and Paulo, the 1887 steam locomotive was named for him.

At the Locomotive Learning Park you’ll be able to take a narrated train ride along an historic locomotive right of way in one of our replica can cars, pulled by a vintage diesel locomotive.  There will also be toy model train exhibits.

Self-guided tours will be offered at Grove Farm museum.  In addition, there will be a ‘live’ stream model train as well as electric model train exhibits.

Also at the museum, Paulo will be on static display so you can get a close up look at this unique piece of history.
