Hale’iwa – Waialua Legend
Only minutes from the world renowned Haleiwa bridge, in the town of Waialua is a place named Pu’u’iki Cemetery. It looks ordinary, but a closer look will reveal an unusual headstone that reads: Born 1923. Died 1916.
It’s a mystery on why it reads that way. Was it purposeful, or done on accident? The headstone belongs to a young girl, but the cause of her death is unknown.
At night you can see bright green fireballs flying over the cemetery.
