Crawford Convalescent Home






My recent trip to Hawaii was the usual tropical adventure full of site seeing, shopping and food. We had spent the day at Turtle Bay and were looking for somewhere to have lunch, when literally from the corner of my eye I spotted the beautiful ruins of a building that was tucked back off the Kamehameha Highway. We turned around so I could take pictures. It is located next to The Crawford Convalescent Home on the North Sore of Oahu. The building was once a home for wayward boys and has since been affected by a fire in 2002. In all honesty, I have to say, this was one of the most beautiful things I saw on the island. Buildings like this give me a peaceful feeling. I love old abandoned structures and urban decay. My ultimate dream is to one day be able to cross the country and see some of the old hospitals and asylums left standing.

  1. I was just touring the North Shore of Oahu and came across the ruins yesterday! I had my brother trurn around and we parked in front as we snapped photos from every possible angle we could. There are ruins hidden behind some brush and weeds across the street, too, behind the bus stop. I have to agree, the sight of ruins are beautiful. It's history and visual poetry.
