Kalaupapa National Historical Park

The park was established in 1980 to preserve the memories and experiences of the people forcibly sent here. The park's mission is to provide a well-maintained community that ensures the present patient-residents of the Kalaupapa Settlement may live out their lives peacefully and comfortably. The park also supports education concerning Hansen's disease (leprosy), a disease shrouded in fear and ignorance for many centuries.
