Anna Ranch Heritage Center
65-1480 Kawaihae Road, Kamuela, Big Island, Hawaii
Learn a little something about Hawaii’s rich history by visiting the former cattle ranch of Anna Leialoha Lindsey Perry-Fiske—known as the “First Lady of Ranching” and “The Queen of the Pā'ū Riders.” Born in 1900, Anna was not only a rancher and famed pā'ū rider, but also a community leader, jockey, cowgirl, humanitarian, licensed butcher, baker and candlestick maker. Just kidding about those last two. Still, you get the point—she was a pretty darned accomplished woman, especially for her time. At the Anna Ranch Heritage Center, you can find out about Anna’s many contributions to the community, tour the historically-restored ranch, and as well as learn about the history of ranching on the Big Island.
