Crawford's Convalescent Home on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Liberty Homes RS-#62825

Kahuku Hawaii

Many a time we drove around our island and passed this property and I was one to concoct all kinds of morbid thoughts and tales in my head when I saw a spooky kind of structure. This was one of them. After researching I found that there is nothing spooky about it but a worn down building on the property.

Right off Kamehameha Highway the old gutted building (to the right) still stands with what is left of the state home for wayward boys. On June 18, 2002 a fire destroyed all but concrete walls of the structure that was vacant for some time, so no one got hurt or injured.

North Shore HawaiiWhat this property really is ...is Crawford's Convalescent (nursing) Home, located on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. It has been in existence since 1954 and licensed with 55 beds and serving the Medicare population as well as Intermediate care patients.

James Crawford worked at the State Hospital and decided to take over this site in 1954 and open a nursing home and he started out with just a couple of residents. The current owners built additional structures in 1968 and have since been certified, monitored & licensed through the State and Federal governments. They take the residents on outings as well; such as a recent venture to Waimea Falls Autobon Center.

Now that I know more about this property I can get those notions out of my head...from way back in "kid time".

Margaret: The air, sun and sea are the top contibutors ....for healing....believe me.

Paddy: I wouldn't doubt it....it is an escape :) A long time ago Elvis lived atop the mountain of Pupukea in his Hawaii Estate. His last visit to the North Shore and his home was in 1977...five months before his death. I presume it was his paradise escape...away from it all.
