Minor light of Hawai'i - Kailua Lighthouse

The present Kailua Light, a pyramidal concrete tower, was built under the Bureau of Lighthouses in 1915 and replaced a fixed lens-lantern light that was established in 1909.

The light sits on Kuka'ilimoku Point and marks the northwestern side of Kailua Bay, which is home to a sport fishing fleet. Kailua Lighthouse was converted to acetylene and made non-attended in June 1922.

Head Keepers: Daniel P. Haleamau (1909 1913), James K. Haleamau (1913 1922).
