Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 29, 1962):
Sugar cane had been grown by native Hawaiians, but the establishment in 1835 of the Ladd & Company sugar plantation, the first commercially successful such enterprise in the Islands, marked the real foundation of what is now Hawaii's largest industry. Sugar long played a major role in Hawaiian economics and politics, and was perhaps the dominant force in bringing about the annexation of the Islands to the United States.
