Poliʻahu Heiau sits on a bluff on the north bank of the Wailua River near Opaekaʻa Falls. In 1000 A.D. the first Tahitians migrated to Hawaii and may have landed at Wailua. They brought new forms of worship that included human sacrifice especially when preparations were being made for war.
In 1930 Juliet Rice Wichman, along with the staff who lived there, would hear the sound of Hawaiian ghost soldiers in the dark of night.
