    This historical Volcano property built in the early 1900's by Charles Clark Kennedy , one of Hilo’s leading business men ,was his summer home to escape the hot Hilo temperatures and to entertain important Government and Business Leaders Including U.S. Senators . It is still being preserved with much of the Kennedy heirlooms and antiques which are all included with the sale of the home. There was no road from Hilo to Volcano so kennedy built it to get to his summer home and then the sugar cane railway went in. C.C. Kennedy was manager of Waiakea Mill Company comprised of 95,000 acres of sugar cane. He invented the cane loader which was very successful and consisted of a locomotive-like crane placed upon a car. The crane was operated by a 5 horse power Union gasoline engine.
